This is the law in Illinois and Wisconsin. I don't know what the charges are in Wisconsin, but in Illinois it costs me $12 for a 2-year sticker.

As a bookkeeper, I would bet that the price of processing the paperwork and the sticker is $12 or more, so this is just a giant cost of money or at best, a wash of money. Employment for another group of paper pushers and a bopther for the public.

Next they will go after the kids on the innertubes. After all, those work both summer in the water AND winter on the snow...

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!

If there's a tax or fee for kayaks, that'll be news to me and a lot of others I know.

"This is the law in Illinois and Wisconsin. "

No it is not. The IL rule was voluntary, and I hadn't ever heard it changed. Flatlander's lauching their canoes and kayak's at the local lauch here in WI ~month ago, were not defaced with a 3" high, 1.5-2' long string of numbers. Folks only do it, to avoid being pulled over for a "papers please" check, in places like the MN boundary waters.
