DES PLAINES, Ill. – State Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, recently helped lead a successful bipartisan effort to lower the cost for vehicle trailer registration, saving Illinois drivers money and demonstrating his responsiveness toward community concerns.

“In the 2019 capital plan, there was a dramatic hike on vehicular trailer registration fees that was simply unfair to Illinois drivers, and after hearing from many residents in my community and around the state, it became clear that we needed to lower those fees back to a reasonable level,” Moylan said. “In this current economic climate with so many experiencing financial difficulties we should not be finding ways to squeeze more tax dollars from our working class, but finding more ways to save them money.”

Moylan made lowering fees on vehicle trailers a priority in this legislative session after hearing from scores of residents in the 55th district. He sponsored and helped pass Senate Bill 58, which would lower the trailer registration fees from $118 to $36. The measure has been sent to Gov. J.B. Pritzker for approval.

“It is good to show the people of Illinois that when they speak, their legislators listen,” Moylan said. “We need to continue building bipartisan coalitions that are able to pass simple pieces of legislation to help get Illinois back on track. Repealing this arbitrary hike for trailer registration fees had widespread support in our communities and in Springfield, and I hope to see this bill signed into law quickly.”
