The House gave final legislative approval to the wildlife resources measure by a 108-12 vote Monday night. It passed the Senate earlier this month.
The bill, among other things, would raise the annual resident hunting and inland fishing licenses from $20 to $25. Higher license fees for non-residents also would go up.
Bill sponsor Rep. Jay Adams of Catawba County says new prices for various permits were vetted in committees and are in line with similar permits in surrounding states.
Adams says licensing revenues remain with the state Wildlife Resources Commission.
