Indiana House Bill 1415 Bill would raise some state DNR fees

Niki Kelly, Journal Gazette

INDIANAPOLIS - Some fees imposed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources could rise under a bill approved by a Senate panel Monday.

House Bill 1415 also clarifies new rules on what high-powered rifles can be used during deer hunting season.

It passed unanimously and now moves to the full Senate.

The bill reclassified more than a dozen commercial fees as "minimum fees" and gave the appointed Natural Resources Commission permission to raise them.

Sam Hyer, of the agency, said many other fees - including recreational hunting and fishing licenses - are already handled this way.

He said some of the fees in question haven't been raised since the 1960s.
