PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Fewer Oregonians are hunting and fishing these days, which means less revenue for the state to pay for wildlife management and conservation.
So the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is taking a new look at how it pays for those programs, and plans to request a bigger share of general fund revenue and more frequent increases in license and tag fees.
The agency will unveil a budget proposal Thursday and then take the plan on the road to seek public comment in seven Oregon cities next month.
