"These are people who committed crimes. I do not believe that the hardworking taxpayers in Michigan should foot the bill for a registry of crimes they did not commit."
-- Sen. Rick Jones, (R) Grand Ledge
People on the state sex offender registry may have to start paying more to keep it running. A bill headed to Governor Snyder would charge them a $50 annual fee. Right now they pay a one-time $50 fee when they're added to the registry. Senator Rick Jones sponsored the bill. He says it's unfair for law-abiding taxpayers to cover the cost when most offenders are on it for 25 years to life.
