MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that offers wounded veterans discounts on hunting and fishing licenses.
The bipartisan measure allows non-state residents with Purple Hearts to buy a gun deer license for the resident price of $24 rather than the $160 non-resident fee. They also will pay the $20 resident fee for a fishing license rather than the $50 non-resident fee.
Conservation patron licenses, which are a combination of hunting, fishing and trapping licenses, will cost in-state Purple Heart recipients $10 rather than $165 and non-resident Purple Heart winners $161 rather than $600.
Walker signed the bill Friday after a Veterans Day ceremony in the state Capitol's rotunda.
