Read the first time January 16, 1992.
To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4199), to amend Section 56-1-200, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to fee for duplicate for lost or destroyed license, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
WILLIAM D. BOAN, for Committee.
1. Estimated Cost to State-First Year $-0-
2. Estimated Cost to State-Annually
H. 4199 proposes to amend Section 56-1-200 of the S.C. Code of Laws (1976) so as to increase the fee for duplicate for lost or destroyed license from fifty cents to ten dollars.
Enactment of H. 4199 would have no effect on the State's General Fund.
Enactment of H. 4199 would increase revenues to the State Highway Fund by approximately $22,500 annually. The State Highway Department estimates that it costs approximately $8.30 to issue a duplicate drivers license. During FY 91, the State Highway Department issued 13,290 duplicate driver licenses at 50 cents each. Thus, based on the cost of issuing these licenses, the State Highway Department lost $103,662. Increasing this fee would cover the cost of issuing duplicate licenses and generate additional revenue.
