The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is taking comments on new veteran licenses, through August 19.

Senate File 581 was passed and signed into law in June and establishes a new lifetime trout fishing license for Iowa residents who qualify for the disabled veteran homestead credit.

Senate File 2383 was passed and signed into law in June and establishes a new annual armed forces fishing license and a new annual armed forces hunting and fishing combined license to be issued to any resident of Iowa who has served in the armed forces of the United States on federal active duty. The law provides that the fee for the new veteran licenses shall be no more than five dollars.

Proposed rulemaking would establish a $63 fee for the disabled veteran lifetime trout license and a $5 fee for each of the new veteran licenses.

This informal comment period is an opportunity to assist the DNR in developing the rule proposal. After considering public input, the DNR will determine whether to proceed with the rule making and present a proposal to the Governor’s Office and the Natural Resource Commission. If a formal rulemaking goes forward, you will have additional opportunities to submit comments to the proposed rule.

Comments on the proposed new veteran licenses may be submitted through August 19 via email to [email protected], or by mail to Joe Larscheid, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Wallace State Office Building, 502 East Ninth Street, Des Moines, Iowa 50319-0034.
