Fees for hunting and fishing licenses. Clarifies the current authority of the Virginia Marine Resources Commission and the Board of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to increase certain fees for hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses. Beginning in 2004, each was given the authority to revise certain fees, through regulation, no more frequently than once every three years and by no more than $5 for each adjustment. This legislation clarifies the current cost of licenses by noting that the fees may have changed in the sections where the General Assembly had previously provided the actual cost of a license.
