HARRISBURG,PA (WITF) — A recent proposal to cut costs at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has drawn some controversy.
A state fishing license costs $21. It has since 2005. It’s a main source of funding for the agency.
The sale of licenses has been on the decline since the 1990s, but the commission is still expected to stock the same amount of trout in rivers and streams. Plus, pension and healthcare costs have gone up for employees.
