SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTHI) – There might not be a budget deal in the state of Illinois but new license plate renewals will still show up in your mailbox for now.
Renewal notices have been a point of contention for months.
The Illinois Secretary of State’s Office quit sending them out in the mail for a while because of lack of funding.
That meant many drivers forgot to renew and were forced to pay fines.
The mailing has started again, but now a spokesman says it can’t continue with additional funding.
Illinois has gone a year and a half without a permanent budget.
