State Rep. Don Vruwink, D-Milton, has introduced a bill that would create a lifetime fishing license in Wisconsin, according to a press release.
Like other fishing licenses, revenue generated from the lifetime license would be used to maintain fish and wildlife habitats via the state's Conservation Fund.
"The intent of the bill is to encourage the next generation of fishing men and women," Vruwink says in the release. "But any person who fishes regularly may benefit from a lifetime license so they don't have to purchase one every year."
An annual fishing license costs $20 with fees. The lifetime license would cost $577.50, or the total of nearly 29 years' worth of annual licenses, according to the release.
The Committee on Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage will vote on the bill Wednesday.
