Cost Of License Plates Going Up

Posted by wlpo on December 31, 2012

Hopefully you renewed your license plates recently.  If you did, you saved a couple bucks.

License plate renewals go up as of tomorrow from 99 to 101 dollars.  Fees are also going up for things like bike and equestrian trails and fishing.  The bill sponsored by State Representative Frank Mautino is pushing to raise over 30 million dollars a year for the department of natural resources.  Mautino argued that without new revenues, the state would have to consider closing state parks like Starved Rock.

Mautino and State Senator Sue Rezin both supported the license plate increase.
