Proposal to Remove the Lost License Fee Discussed

Proposal to Remove the Lost License Fee Discussed

PIERRE, S.D. – The Game, Fish and Parks Commission continued their discussion to remove the $20 administrative fee for lost or destroyed licenses, permits or game tags. However, the license agent’s fee established by SDCL 41-6-66.1 would still be charged by license agents and the department.

The purpose of requesting this change is a direct action to provide enhanced customer service. The replacement cost was inadvertently creating a barrier to participation in certain circumstances.

Authorized license agents and the department, as per SDCL 41-6-66.1, will charge a license agent’s fee of $4 for resident and $8 for nonresident licenses.

Individuals can comment online atgfp.sd.gov/forms/positions or mail comments to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501.

To be included in the public record and to be considered by the commission, comments must include a full name and city of residence and meet the submission deadline of 72 hours before the public hearing (not including the day of the public hearing).

The Commission will take final action on this proposal at their July 16-17 meeting in Pierre.
