Bill Rewards Elder Fisherpersons

Getting older, much older, might soon pay off for Minnesota anglers. Legislation under consideration at the state capitol would provide free fishing licenses to Minnesota residents once they hit 90 years old. The bill is named for one of its most vocal advocates, Irene Long of Isle, Minnesota. She's an avid angler and wants to make sure her hobby doesn't become cost prohibitive for those her age. The base fee for a Minnesota adult fishing license is $17.00, but free licenses are available to military members, foreign-exchange students and people with developmental disabilities.

90? Why not 75 or 80 years of age?? Most folks 90 yrs are either in a care center, deceased or too disabled to fish at any time?? Let us think more realistic on this age requirement??
