I am waiting to see what the watercraft renewal stickers will be after they think we over the trailer fees.

I am glad the FOID and CCW fees didn't get raised, yet.

State legislature admitted they made a mistake by raising trailer fee's, supposedly they were not to increase. So they "fixed" that mistake and
$36 is the new fee. So what about us who paid the extortion?

I had not heard of this. When did it happen?
I paid the $118.00 twice. Is there going to be a class action suit?

I did a quick google search.
For $118.00 you get a permanent life time plate. Trailers under 3000 pounds it goes back to $18.00.

I doubt they'll lower their $150 for title transfer. I bought a used boat w/trailer, a small atv trailer, a used truck and re-registered another vehicle so far this year = well over a grand.

I don't believe that's accurate. SB58 (which, among other things, brings the TA plate to $36) is what just passed at the end of session on 5/30.

What you're referencing appears to be HB5306?
The last action on that was 1/31, "session sine die".

The Illinois secretary of state's web site list the TA plate at $18.00.

I don't think they ever changed the actual price ($100 more) on their website.

Even as broke as Illinois is I'm sure they updated that.

You're right, they did update it. With quarterly price adjustments. Still shows prices based on $118 registration fee...

Go to Departments, then vehicles, then fees.

Montana is about $50 for permanent trailer plates-once and done. Same with the boat, permanent registration. And no sales tax, but don’t bother moving up here! Nasty winters, just horrible, and bears, snakes and Californians!

Haha, you should be worried. A lot of those folks that leave California because of the high cost turn right around and start to create the same issues in their new location.

I was in the secretary of state office today.
I asked what the cost to renew a TA trailer plate was. It's still $118.00.
