Legislation to raise $13.1 million a year more from DMV fees also has cleared the Senate Transportation Committee and is on its way to the full Senate, as part of a tentative end-of-session transportation funding deal. Meanwhile, House Republicans are headed into a closed-door caucus at 4 p.m. to discuss the deal, while House Democrats will hold an open caucus at the same time. Said Senate Transportation Committee Chairman John McGee, R-Caldwell, “I’m optimistic that we’ll be done tomorrow.”
