Lawmakers consider rolling back late fees

Colorado lawmakers are considering scaling back late vehicle registration fees passed last year.

Three proposals have been introduced in the Senate so far.

Two would get rid of the new $25 a month late fee and replace it with a $10 fee that could be waived by county clerks. The other would exempt just boat trailers and other non-motorized from the $25 late fee and replace it with a $10 fee that could be waived.

The Senate Veterans & Military Affairs Committee considered them Wednesday but delayed a vote to wait for similar proposals being developed in the House.

The penalties were part of a bill to increase registration fees to raise $250 million a year for bridge and road repairs. Chairman Rollie Heath said lawmakers never intended to target boat trailers.
