State Rep. Ann Bollin this week voted against a slew of bills to increase various state fees — a follow-up move to help pay for the massive $82 billion budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1.

“State government is here to serve the people of Michigan, not squeeze every last penny out of them,” Bollin said. “Inflation is hitting families and small businesses hard enough as it is. I’m opposing this because it’s wrong to hike fees for basic services.”

House Bills 4988-4997, 5003-5004, and 5006-5007, which the Democrat-controlled House passed this week, raise certain fees and block other fees from rolling back to lower levels.

For example, the legislation would raise the commercial look-up fee for Secretary of State records to $15. Another example is the cancelation of a scheduled decrease in application fees for occupational licenses.

Bollin sponsored three amendments to strike the 25% increase for businesses and residents seeking to obtain important vehicle records. Her amendments, which would have retained the current $11 rate, were defeated on a party-line vote.
