Republicans in the House and Senate have reached a compromise on the transportation budget.
The House and Senate went back and forth in a joint committee on a number of issues, especially raising fees.
In the end, the House got its measure allowing counties to hike the vehicle registration fee by $5. Republican Rep. Rob McColley says the fees can provide a boost to local road projects.
“With cars becoming more fuel efficient, people driving less miles, the strain is being put on our local governments and they’ve asked for assistance.”
