Illinois Drops Boating License For Rafts, Kayaks, Canoes
(Springfield, IL) — If it doesn’t have a motor, you don’t need a state license to float it on an Illinois lake, river, or pond. The state’s Department of Natural Resources yesterday announced that it is doing away with stamps for non-motorized watercraft. Ed Cross with the DNR says the stamps proved tough to attach to some kayaks and canoes. Illinois had charged six-dollars for a stamp for paddleboards, canoes, kayaks and the like. The change takes effect June 1st.
