SPRINGFIELD, IL-(Effingham Radio)- 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.
