NY hunting and fishing license prices may drop

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

New York's hunting and fishing licenses may be getting cheaper.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed a plan to cut the price of licenses in an effort to boost the economy. Under the governor's plan, fishing licenses for New Yorkers would drop from $29 to $25, and hunting licenses would be slashed from $29 down to $22. Fees would also drop considerably for out-of-staters, from $70 to $50 for a fishing license, and from $140 to $100 for a hunting license.

And the licenses would be good for the whole year, instead of just for the season.

The governor says outdoor sports spur some $8.1 billion of economic activity annually.
