Senator Diane Pappas

SPRINGFIELD – A measure that would reduce vehicle registration fees for older Illinoisans passed the Senate Thursday thanks to support from State Senator Diane Pappas (D-Itasca).

“Older Illinois residents deserve a break considering skyrocketing inflation,” Pappas said. “This measure aims to reduce vehicle fees for older adults living on limited income.”

The measure would reduce the vehicle registration fee for vehicle owners and their spouses from $24 to $10 if they qualify or have been approved for benefits under the Senior Citizens and Persons with Disability Property Tax Relief Act.

Under the act, individuals 65 years of age or older qualify for the reduced registration fee if their income is less than $33,562 a year for a single person or less than $44,533 a year for a couple.

“Our seniors on fixed incomes are struggling right now,” Pappas said. “I will continue to find ways to make sensible cuts that get money back into people’s pockets.”

House Bill 5304 passed the Senate and now awaits final approval by the governor.
