House backs six-year driver’s license for La.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Louisiana could be on the road to a six-year driver’s license.
Currently, drivers must renew their licenses in the state every four years. But the House on Tuesday unanimously supported a proposal by Republican Rep. Franklin Foil, of Baton Rouge, that would change the renewal period to six years.
The Senate has backed similar legislation. The two chambers must agree on a final version before the change could be enacted.
Under Foil’s bill, the fee for a basic license would grow from $28.50 to $42.75 to cover the extra years of renewal. Fees for other licenses also would increase, with the amounts varying based on type of license.
Other handling fees also can apply, depending on where the license is renewed.
