The state says it will close dozens of parks and scale back fish planting unless recreational licenses and fees are increased.
The Department of Natural Resources also says it will have to cut back on the number of conservation officers unless it gets the extra fee money.
The DNR released a memo today outlining a series of cutbacks -- some beginning as early as November 1st.
None of the $1.3 billion in state tax increases approved earlier this month will go to the DNR, which draws less than 5 percent of its money from the general fund.
