(KSL News) Renewing your driver's license could soon cost you more.

A new bill would increase the fee for regular Class D driver's licenses from $25 to $30. Other special licenses would go up by $2 to $5.

The increased fees would raise $5.7 million in 2008. That money would go towards hiring new staff and purchasing equipment for new offices.

Last month we told you about a proposed bill that would ban ticket quotas for police officers. Yesterday the House approved the bill.

Under the bill, a police captain would be forbidden from telling his officers to write a certain number of tickets each day.

The bill doesn't prohibit police from issuing citations. It now goes to the Senate.

To read more on both these bills, check out today's edition of the Deseret Morning News.
