Illinois Lawmakers Seeking to Reverse Trailer Fees

SPRINGFIELD – A massive increase for small trailer registration fees in Illinois could soon be reversed.

A group of lawmakers, including State Rep. Jeff Keicher, are trying again to lower the annual price for a license from $118-dollars back down to $18-dollars.

The increase was part of the funding mechanisms for the Capital improvements program approved in 2019, but Keicher saidunlike larger trailers, these should not have been swept up in the bill.

He added lawmakers have been in session at least three times since then, but the fix hasn’t been a priority for House leaders, due to the pandemic.
