Finance Committee approves lowering wolf hunt license feesSubmitted: 05/15/2013
Story By The Associated Press


MADISON - The Legislature's budget committee has approved reducing wolf hunt license fees.

Gov. Scott Walker included a proposal in his executive budget that would reduce state residents' fee from $100 to $47 and non-residents' fee from $500 to $249.

Walker's administration hopes the lower fees would encourage more people to purchase licenses. The administration also says the lower fees would be more consisted with bear and elk licenses, which stand at $49 for residents and $251 for non-residents.

The Republican-controlled budget panel voted 12-4 Wednesday to set the wolf fees at $49 for residents and $251 for non-residents, bringing the fees precisely in line with bear and elk licenses and providing $4,000 more for wolf damage claims and wolf management over the two-year budget than Walker's plan.
