|Subject:||Helping Local Police Offset the Cost of Providing Accident Reports|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to increase the fee for a local police report of a vehicle accident as permitted under § 3751 of Title 75.
Currently, the maximum fee local police departments are permitted to charge for furnishing a copy of an accident report is $15. This figure was set in 1992 and inflation would dictate that the same figure should now be $25.43.
My legislation increases the maximum fee to $22 to be in-line with the cost of a state police report.
I urge you to join me in co-sponsoring this legislation to help local police departments defer costs and to help keep local general taxes low.
Introduced as HB1740
