BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Legislature has agreed to raise driver’s license fees for the first time in more than 30 years.

The House passed the Senate bill 65-25 on Wednesday that raises commercial and non-commercial driver’s license fees from $15 to $30. It now goes to Gov. Doug Burgum.

The Legislature last raised the driver’s license fees in 1987. Several attempts to raise the fees have been rebuffed by lawmakers, who called it a tax increase.

The increased fees are expected to raise $5.5 million in a two-year budget cycle.

Non-commercial driver’s licenses are valid for six years. Commercial driver’s licenses are good for four years.
