    The Tennessee Fish & Wildlife Commission - the governing body over hunting, fishing and boating regulations - will vote next week on a measure to increase the registration fees for boats in Tennessee.

    "It has been ten years since we had an increase boat registration fees," said Chris Richardson, Asst. Director with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. "Since that time the consumer price index has increased about 17 percent."

    Richardson said that is basically the amount of increase they are requesting. For instance the annual registration fee for a boat up to 16 feet long is currently $13. If the increase passes it will go up to $15 per year. A 20-foot boat would go from $25 up to $29 per year.
