It may soon cost a little more to drive in California.
An Assembly bill headed to Governor Brown's desk will increase vehicle registration fees to pay for fingerprint identification programs.
AB 2395, which passed yesterday on a 41-to-30 vote, authorizes counties to increase fees by $1 for personal vehicles and by $2 for commercial vehicles.
Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael says his bill will help law enforcement agencies improve programs and keep the community safe.
However, Republicans say there is no connection between fingerprint programs and vehicle fees.
