(IRN) – Hundreds of new laws go into effect Jan. 1, but the one that will save you time at the Secretary of State’s Office isn’t among them. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed legislation in the fall that will allow vehicle registration to be paid for two years at a time. It won’t save vehicle owners money on the $101 annual cost. but it would save time. Drivers would pay $202 for the two-year registration. Trailer owners would be able to register for up to five years at once. The bill passed both House and Senate with unanimous support. The law won’t take effect until 2021 in order to allow Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White the time to implement the change.
