Governor Larry Hogan announced Thursday that he will reduce or eliminate 155 fees in Maryland. The plan will save taxpayers 60 million dollars over the next 5 years.

"We're putting that money back into our economy and back into the pockets of Maryland businesses and taxpayers," the governor said.

Some of the fee cuts include reducing the cost of an E-ZPass from $9 to $7.50 and eliminating the $20 fee for a veteran designation on a driver's license.

"This is another step our administration is taking to follow through and do exactly what we said we would do," Hogan wrote in a press release. "Our goal is to make it easier to live, work and retire in our state, and continue to change Maryland for the better.”
