AGFC working with state legislators to combat failing infrastructure on public lands and waters

April 16, 2021

LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is working with Arkansas state legislators to address concerns about failing and outdated infrastructure that provides habitat for the state’s fish and wildlife and public recreation opportunities. To tackle this challenge, they are working together to propose a modest increase to basic resident hunting and fishing licenses, which have remained unchanged since 1990 and 1984, respectively. “This increase is supported by many of the state’s conservation and sportsman's groups,” said Geralyn Hoey, Director of Conservation Partnerships with the National Wildlife Federation.
