Lawmakers OK $10 fee hike for off-road vehicles

Off-road vehicle drivers in Michigan will pay at least $10 more for a license under legislation expected to be signed by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The state Senate on Tuesday narrowly approved fee hikes that are factored into the state budget that takes effect in the fall.
Starting in April 2014, an annual off-road vehicle license fee will cost about $26 instead of $16. It'll cost roughly $36 to ride on state off-road vehicle trails for a year.
Though lawmakers recently passed a budget assuming the fee hikes would raise an extra $2.7 million next year, senators struggled to pass the increases. The bill passed on a 20-18 vote.
A separate bill to raise hunting and fishing license fees failed to pass but is expected to be revisited Wednesday.
