Dan Brady Will Reduce License Plate Fees by $50 for One Year as Illinois Secretary of State

 

Illinois Republican Dan Brady today announced that as the next Secretary of State he will
reduce all Illinois motor vehicle license plate fees by $50 for one year to provide relief to
economically hard-hit Illinois families.

 

“Illinois citizens have been sucker-punched by skyrocketing food, housing and medical
care costs, and enough is enough,” Brady said. “That extra $50 per vehicle may help families to
pay for groceries, gasoline, school books or their utility bills. Taxpayers have wondered for years
where their money goes in Springfield, and it’s about time it went back to them.”

 

Brady cited the 8.3 percent increase over the past 12 months in the Consumer Price Index
as evidence that costs are rising at a higher rate than many people can afford.

 

“How many Illinois residents get an 8.3 percent raise each year? How are they supposed
to keep their heads above water?” Brady said. “Admittedly my plan is only a $50 reduction per
vehicle, but $50 still means something today.”

 

Under the Brady Plan, standard license plate renewal fees for 2023 would be reduced
from $151 to $101; personalized plate renewals would drop from $158 to $108; and vanity

license plates, currently at $164, would be $114 next year. The current license plate renewal rates
would return in 2024.

 

“The streamlining and efficiency measures I plan to make as Secretary of State will help
to absorb the cost of this one-year reduction in license plate fees,” Brady said. “Illinois residents
are tightening their belts during these tough times, and we should do the same in state
government.”

 

Brady’s license plate fee reduction plan is in line with other inflation-fighting measures
enacted by the Illinois General Assembly. The legislature has frozen the one percent grocery tax,
postponed the state’s gasoline tax increase until January 2023, and is providing a $50 income tax rebate to Illinois taxpayers.
