JEROME, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is proposing raising resident fees for all licenses, tags and permits by 20 percent. But the plan also includes locking in 2013 prices for hunters and anglers who by a license every year.

The Times-News reports that Fish and Game Deputy Director Sharon Kiefer presented an update on the proposal to the Fish and Game Commission at its quarterly meeting on Thursday.

Kiefer says that if everyone bought a license every year the agency would be in good shape as far as revenue. She says most of the agency’s revenue comes from licenses and fees, as well as excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment. Officials say that since 2008 the agency hasn’t met revenue goals.
