These fees already have gone up

Acting state Parks Director David Ricks reported to lawmakers that the state Parks Board is “adamant as far as opposing registration fees to replace fuel tax cutbacks.” Here’s why: Snowmobile, boat and ATV owners already have seen huge registration fee increases in the past four years. Here are the increases:

* In 2005, snowmobile registration fees went up 5%
* In 2007, snowmobile registration fees went up 51% - that’s not a typo
* In 2007, boat registration fees went up 48%
* In 2009, registration fees for motorbikes and ATVs went up 20 percent.

That’s not counting the invasive species sticker that was enacted this year, Ricks noted, which is on top of boat registration fees.
