2017 House Bill 5040

Senate Roll Call 80: Passed

To repeal the “driver responsibility fees” that are assessed for various traffic violations in addition to the fine for the violation itself. The bill would go into effect on Sept. 30, 2018, and would also clear any outstanding liability an individual may have to pay these fees, and allow reinstatement of drivers licenses suspended for non-payment. These very expensive fees were originally adopted in 2003 to increase state revenue collections.
