A bill which would raise Iowa hunting and fishing license fees has cleared a Senate Committee. Senator Mike Sexton of Rockwell City says license fees increase between three-and-four dollars for in-state outdoorsmen and women.Sexton says it’s been 16 years since hunting and fishing license fees were raised. The bill also increases the number of deer hunting licenses available to out-of-staters. Today, 75-hundred out-state deer licenses are granted. If the bill becomes law, 25-hundred more would be available. The bill faces an uncertain future, as members of the House don’t want to raise any fees.
