Cliff notes: For those who don't want to click on the link. House passed the measure on Nov. 17th, Senate passed it today, once Obama signs it the duck stamp will go from $15 to $25 with 98% of the purchase price going towards wetlands/waterfowl conservation. If/when passed will be the first increase in 23 years.

Another $10.00 doesn't bother me much. I've had a Lifetime Combo License for 23 years. The only thing I pay for is a Fed Duck Stamp. On the otherhand, I only duck hunt on private property so more public wetlands won't help me a whole lot.
