Last week the Michigan House passed a four-bill package that will partially repeal portions of the state’s driver responsibility fee program that started in 2003. This bill will pull back on some of the responsibility fees that come along with some traffic violations, but would leave the fees attached to drunk driving, reckless driving, and manslaughter.
It seems that our State Government is starting to adjust to our current economic status, but is this the right adjustment? The state will lose more than $100 million per year if this new bill passes, but drivers will not have to decide between their license and paying their bills.
I understand that our state needs that $100 million and will probably look for that money in other areas. Will we like how our State gets their funds?
On the other hand, I’ve also dealt with many clients that cannot afford to lose a license. Most of them need money to get their license back, but cannot get to work without a license. If they do not drive on a suspended license, they will lose their job and put themselves even father behind.
What do you think?
