Motorists who have been debat
ing whether to license their cars
during Jnne and pay a full year's
fee therefore, or wait until the
first of July and enjoy the bene
fit of a half year rate, will have
their problem partially solved by
an "opinion of the attorney general
which holds that the new three
quarters license fee is applicable
after the newlawa go Into effect
The opinion was sought by Hal
E. Hoss, secretary of state, follow
ing the receipt of many Inquiries
The last legislature provided
for a three-quarter fee to be paid
after three months of the license
year had elapsed, in addition to
the present half year and quarter
"The construction placed on the
law by the attorney general will
serve to aid a large number of
people' who need their cars just
prior to the date of the half year
fee," said a statement issued by
the secretary of state. "During the
month of June, 1928, the auto
mobile department licenses more
than 3000 cars which shows that
many people cannot wait to take
advantage of the cheaper rates.
"This year, after the new law
becomes effective June 4, persons
applying for a license need remit
only three-fourths of the regular
annual license. For example, if
the regular license Is $40, the
three-fourths fee required during
June will total only $30.
"Next year, the advantage of
this reduced rate will apply ear
lier In the license year."
