MT Senators Try To Increase Price Of Duck Stamps

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Senators Jon Tester and Max Baucus are working to increase the price of Federal Duck Stamps, because the price is the lowest it's been in the stamps' 80 year history. The senators recently introduced legislation which would increase the current price of $15 to $25.

Money raised from the sale of ducks stamps goes to conservation efforts. The senators say the stamps have lost 40% of their value since last being increased in 1991, making wetland preservation more difficult.

Duck stamps were created in 1934, and also serve as hunting licenses and provide access to national wildlife refuges.
