Low-income seniors would get a break on hunting and fishing license fees under a bill recently passed by the Illinois House. Lawmakers approved legislation reducing state hunting and fishing license fees to just one dollar for seniors over age 75 who are part of the state’s benefit access program.
The measure is sponsored by representative Jack Franks of Woodstock.

The benefit access program is formerly known as the Circuit Breaker program. The bill now moves to the Senate for a vote.
