A fishing license issued to a resident blind person shall be effective during the remainder of the person's life unless sooner suspended or revoked by the executive director. The executive director may issue complimentary nonresident fishing licenses to legally blind persons if the state in which the person is a resident provides a reciprocal privilege for legally blind residents of this state. The executive director shall determine the form of such complimentary licenses. A complimentary nonresident fishing license under this paragraph shall be effective for the lifetime of the applicant unless sooner suspended or revoked by the executive director.
