A license fee activated by the Houston County probate judge could soon be axed by state legislature.
Ten years ago, the state attorney general gave Probate Judge Luke Cooley permission to charge drivers a car tag fee.
The $3 dollar fee didn't go into effect until February of this year and had residents in an uproar.
The county commission is seeking to do away with the $3 dollar fee entirely.
Chairman Mark Culver said, “In response to the concerns, we feel like that wasn't the initial intent. Certainly the probate judge has been doing it from the Attorney General's opinion. So she didn't do anything wrong, we're just trying to correct the intent.”
The fees were going toward better equipment within the license division of the probate office.
