I don't like the requirement to furnish your social security number to obtain a fishing license. Who can we contact to change this rule?


The 1998 Idaho Legislature required that all applicants for licenses issued by the state, including hunting or fishing licenses, tags and permits, must give their Social Security number for a license or permit to be issued. The Idaho Privacy Law protects your Social Security number. It is considered confidential, will not be printed on your license and will not be given to any private person or organization.
