Proposal would triple vehicle license fees in California

| 11/21/2008

Anyone who licenses a car or truck in California will see big price increases if new proposals are adopted.

The Los Angeles Times reported that some lawmakers are proposing to triple car and truck license fees to make up for a state budget shortfall expected to be $28 billion during the next year and a half.

The increase for a $25,000 vehicle would be $336. The higher fees would generate an estimated $6 billion a year.

It is not clear whether Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would support the plan.
