BENTON – State Representative Dave Severin (R-Benton) says good news is on the way for Illinoisans that purchase trailer license plate sticker renewals in the new year.
“For the last two years, thousands of Illinois motorists were forced to pay a significantly higher amount to renew their trailer license plate sticker,” Severin said. “Thanks to the lobbying efforts by ABATE and thousands of hard- working citizens that contacted legislators by phone, email, text and direct messages, good news coming in 2022.”
The Illinois House and Senate approved a reduction in renewal fee for small trailers from $118 down to $36.
“I’m hopeful this change will extend some relief to hard working Illinoisans at a time of increased inflation and high gas prices. The trailer license sticker fee reduction is one example of how the legislature can help working families when we cooperate in a bipartisan manner. I’m hopeful we can shift our attention to providing more relief in the coming new year as the legislature returns to work on January 4th.”
