MO drivers license fees could rise

Tuesday, 28 May 2013 07:18 Published in Local News

 Missouri residents renewing their drivers' licenses or registering motor vehicles could pay more under a bill awaiting the governor's approval.

Current law allows local fee offices to charge $2.50 for licenses that expire in three years and $5 for a 10-year license. But a measure passed by lawmakers this month would double those charges.

The fee charged for annual vehicle registration would also increase to $5. For vehicles required to be registered every other year, the new fee would be $10.

The fee increases are part of a broader transportation measure awaiting a decision by Gov. Jay Nixon.

On this Memorial Day, we are reminded that St. Louis County is running out of room for grave sites at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Officials say the nation's fifth largest cemetery will run out of space for veterans and their spouses by 2025. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley has expressed support for handing over Sylvan Springs Park to the federal government as part of an expansion. The addition would add about 70 acres to the existing cemetery.
