Subject: Helping Local Police Offset Costs (Former HB 381)
In the near future, I will be re-introducing legislation (Former HB 381) 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 $27.42.

Current law allows for a $25 fee in a city of the first class, but the rest of our local police departments are capped at $15. My legislation increases that maximum fee to $22 to be in-line with the cost of a state police report, and allows police departments to issue an initial basic report to help victims file timely insurance claims.

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.
