Here is what I wrote.
I was really surprised and disappointed to see that once again the government is wanting more money from me to renew my guide license.
Was it not just raised a couple years ago from $250 to $450, now to $725.
That is way to much for a license that a lot of guys will only make money with a few days out of the year. Why is the government always wanting more?
Just to show how out of touch the Dept of Commerce is with guides, they send the Notice of Changes out when the majority of guides are out in a tent trying to make a living.
The license fees for most of the other professionals in the Notice of Changes is substantially lower. Why is this? Guides have a very limited time to make money 10-90 days per year, the average probably around days 20. The other professional have the entire year to make a income.
DO NOT adopt these new changes.
