License Plate Costs Going Up In Illinois

Posted by wlpo on December 8, 2012

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – You will pay $2 more for license plates next year after Gov. Pat Quinn approved a surcharge to help repair and maintain state parks.

The Democrat signed a law Friday increasing registration fees Jan 1. The money will go to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

The agency says the fee could raise as much as $20 million annually toward a $750 million repair backlog. That account could grow to $35 million annually with other new recreational and fishing fees.

Basic license-plate renewals will be $101 with the surcharge. The fee increases were pushed by
State Representative Frank Mautino.
