Both chambers of the Idaho Legislature have approved a plan to increase fees for getting land titles and other records from county clerks and recorders. The price of the first page would increase from $3 to $10. All subsequent pages would still be $3 each. Electronic copies would cost 5 cents a page. The Idaho Senate approved the increase Thursday by a 30-2 vote. Fees haven’t increased since 1987.

“New equipment required to bring us into the electronic age is more expensive to purchase and maintain,” said Sen. Lee Heinrich, R-Cascade, a former county clerk. “This is a just and equitable resolution for a recording fee increase.”

Republican Shirley McKague of Meridian cast one of the two no votes. “I’m voting no because I think tripling the price of the first page is a little bit too much at once,” she said on the Senate floor.

The legislation now heads to the governor’s desk. Read IdahoReporter.com’s first story on the legislation here. The text of the legislation is available here.
