Legislative Update, 7/20/2011
While the legislature has recessed for the summer, legislative business continues. According to an article in the Morning Call, if the state Legislature adopts recommendations of Gov. Tom Corbett’s Transportation Funding Advisory Commission, drivers likely would pay a few cents more for a gallon of gasoline, and higher registration, license and other vehicle-related fees. They would register their cars every two years instead of annually, and those tiny license plate stickers would be eliminated to save money and allow for online renewals. Driver’s license renewals would be every eight years rather than every four, and private companies would be authorized to administer tests to new drivers. Click here to read the Morning Call article.
