It'll cost an extra two bucks to renew your license plates next year.  Illinois Governor Pat Quinn approved the hike last Friday, bringing the new plate fee up to 101-dollars.  The plan is supposed to generate about 20-million dollars a year for the Department of Natural Resources to help pay for upkeep at state parks.  

Lawmakers said last month, about half of the increase would go to pay for actual repairs and improvements with the other half going to pay staff.
