Forby makes outdoors affordable for seniors with reduced license fees

senior-fishingOn Friday afternoon at Crab Orchard Lake in Williamson County, a new law was signed decreasing hunting and fishing license fees for Illinois seniors 75 and older.

The new law sponsored by State Senator Gary Forby cuts fees for hunting and fishing licensure down to $1 or, in some cases, completely eliminates them.

“After a lifetime of buying licenses and stamps, we are making it easier for seniors to afford hunting and fishing. Every senior should be able to enjoy the outdoors even if they’re on a fixed income,” Forby said.

 

The law reduces the fees on sports fishing licenses and all-species hunting licenses to $1 for seniors and completely waives the cost of fishing stamps for salmon, inland trout, migratory water fowl and pheasant, as well as the habitat stamps needed for some hunting and trapping.

Illinois seniors will immediately be able to take advantage of the reduction in fees.
