    The cost for Illinois license plates may be going up. A state panel wants to tack on an extra $1.00, making the new price about $100.00.
    The money would then be used to promote electric cars, offering grants and rebates to those who buy one. The panel says it will make the roads "greener."
    People are worried about the idea. The governor and General Assembly will have the final say whether the increase happens or not.
