The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission has recommended increasing the fee for most hunting and fishing licenses.
A statement from the agency says the proposal calls for a resident hunting license to increase by $7 to $27 and a resident fishing license to increase by $3 to $23. A combination license would increase from $30 to $42. The panel also recommended increasing the fee for senior and disabled hunters from $5 to $18.
If lawmakers approve the proposal, the new rater would go into effect in 2018.
