With CRP enrollment dropping and old CRP projects expiring in the prairie pothole region and habitat conversion on the wintering grounds this is good news for long term habitat acquisition.

http://refugeassociation.org/2014/12/with-broad-support-the-u-s-senate-passes-the-duck-stamp-bill/

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.

Principal is capital or importance. Principle is a rule or law.

So, the principal principle is to add principal.

Thanks for the clarification. I knew I wasn't sure but didn't have time to double check

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.

I was thinking we should get our money back this year with no fronts pushing down birds.

If it were raised to $200 revenue would go down not up.

You must be a democrat to think raising taxes by a huge amount will increase revenue

`(c) Reduction in Price of Stamp.--The Secretary may reduce the
price of each stamp sold under the provisions of this section for a
hunting year if the Secretary determines that the increase in the price
of the stamp after hunting year 2013 resulted in a reduction in
revenues deposited into the fund.

No one ever seems to read actual bills. Even outdoor's reporters these days seem to just rewrite the same news report everyone else gets instead of doing any research. The original $15 still goes to the purchase and lease of wetland habitat overseen by the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission. Something like 98% of each dollar.

The $10 is not exactly an increase of that original $15 used for acquiring habitat as most of the news reports make it sound like. The added $10 is to go into a separate fund used only for acquisition of conservation easements. I posted the actual bill in the original thread. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I doubt many stamp purchasers understand where the increase is really going. For example there will be no added wetland acquisition providing additional public hunting from the new fund. IMHO, a few landowners in the prairie pothole region are going to get some fat lease checks out of this.

To amend the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp Act to
increase the price of Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps to
fund the acquisition of conservation easements for migratory birds, and
for other purposes.

in which there shall be a
subaccount to which the Secretary of the Treasury shall
transfer all amounts in excess of $15 that are received
from the sale of each stamp sold for each hunting year
after hunting year 2013'';

(4) Conservation easements.--Amounts in the subaccount
referred to in subsection (a)(3) shall be used by the Secretary
solely to acquire easements in real property in the United
States for conservation of migratory birds.''.
