Ducks Stamp Price Could Jump

The cost of a federal duck stamp, now $15, would jump to $25 in 2010, under a bill introduced in Congress last week. It would be the first increase since 1991 — the longest period there hasn’t been a change. Under the proposal, stamp availability also would be expanded. The bill is authored by Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., and Robert Wittman, R-Va.
