Not only is it the law in Illinois, but the Dept of Natural Resources patrols the lakes and rivers, and if you don't have your sticker, they will impound your canoe or kayak. Taxpayer dollars at work in the Land of Lincoln!

You have just hit on the real reason for the tax. It allows the LEO's to stop and interrogate you for anything and look for other infractions. Just like the mandatory seat belt laws. The DNR have expanded their LEO arm and the need more things to do and people to hassle. I live in Indiana and it's happening here.
