ORV License Fees Could Increase

Next time you hit the trails on your ORV, it could soon cost you more to buy a license in Michigan.

The Michigan Senate just passed a bill to increase the ORV license fee $10 from $16 to $26. The fee increase is expected to raise an extra $2.7 million.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, the money will help maintain the trails, connect existing trails to destination locations, and put more conservation officers out on the trails.

Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign the bill.

The increase would not go into effect until 2014.
