Hunting and fishing license fees to increase
LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're one step closer to seeing the first significant increase in hunting and fishing license fees since 1997.
Legislation passed the House Tuesday and will now head to Governor Rick Snyder's desk.
That money will be used to improve wildlife, fisheries and habitat programs.
A new base hunting license will take effect in March and will cost 11 dollars. Separate fees will still be levied for hunting certain species.
Deer tags will be raised by five dollars.
Out-of-state residents will also face higher fee increases.
