(1) The State Fish and Wildlife Commission may appoint agents to issue any of the licenses, tags or permits the commission is authorized by law to issue. The commission shall prescribe the procedure for the issuance of such licenses, tags and permits. Agents of the commission shall issue licenses, tags and permits in accordance with the prescribed procedure and shall charge and collect the fees prescribed by law therefor.

If the agent is a county clerk, the agent shall deposit such additional fees in the general fund of the county for which the agent is the clerk. If the agent is an employee of the State Department of Fish and Wildlife, the moneys shall be deposited in the State Wildlife Fund. Agents other than county clerks or department employees who issue licenses without the use of a state computerized licensing system may retain such additional fees for their license tag or permit issuance services. Agents other than county clerks or department employees who issue licenses, tags or permits using a state computerized licensing system may retain such portion of the additional fees, but not less than $2.50 for each resident annual sportspersonís license issued pursuant to ORS 497.132 (2)(a) or 75 cents for any other license, tag or permit, as may be specified by contract between the department and the agent for license, tag or permit issuance service performed by the agent.
