KS House Approves Vehicle Registration Increase

Kansas would increase its vehicle registration fees to help its Highway Patrol put more troopers on the state’s highways under a bill the state Senate approved. The Senate on Tuesday voted for a measure that boosts the fee for each vehicle’s registration by $3.25. The measure goes next to the House. Of the increase, $2 will go to the patrol and $1.25 to the state’s center in Hutchinson for training law enforcement officers. The measure would allow the patrol to hire an additional 75 troopers.
