Winona Senator Not Ready to Commit on DNR Fee Proposals
Paying more to fish and hunt in Minnesota could be the future. The state's DNR wants to add a few dollars to license fees to help balance its budget. Winona state senator Jeremy Miller is on the senate's natural resources committee. He's a little undecided about the fee hikes; worried that they'll keep some people out of the field, but understanding of the DNR's need to keep workers out in the field for service and safety. The DNR's proposal would take the Minnesota fishing license from $17 to $24. And the resident deer license from $26 to $30, among other fee changes.
