2013 Senate Bill 633

House Roll Call 456: Passed

To allow a person to do 10 hours of “community service” in lieu of paying a state “bad driver fee” for certain offenses, including driving without a license and failing to have or produce proof of insurance. The fees for these particular offences were repealed by <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2011-SB-167">a 2011 law</a>, so the bill would apply only to individuals who incurred and failed to pay them in the past. These very high, revenue-raising fees were originally <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2003-SB-509">imposed in 2003</a> to avoid spending cuts in that year’s and subsequent state government budgets. A <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2014-HB-5414">law enacted</a> earlier in 2014 would gradually phase out the fees imposed for additional offenses.
