    Secretary of State Jess White shows off samples of the new Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Cubs license plates.

    Illinois drivers will need to fork out a couple more dollars each year for their license plates if the Illinois House passes a plan to help finance state parks with extra cash from the tags.

    Should the plan go through, revenue from a $2 fee hike would support the Department of Natural Resource’s budget as an alternative to a parks fee.

    License plates fees, currently at $99 have remained flat since 2009, when they were increased by $20.

    The Department of Natural Resources is looking to fill a $31 million hole in it's budget and the revenues would fund park maintenance and operations.
