Everybody wants government services -- but nobody wants to pay the taxes that cover those services. That's where fees come in.
Recently we've told you about a new city pothole tax and a county beach tax. Now, you could be paying more next time you use our court system, Fox 11 investigative producer Heidi Cuda reports.
It's Governor Brown's plan to offset $200 million in cuts that the courts face next year, which could force the closure of 10 courthouses in Los Angeles.
Here's what you'll be paying if the governor's plan passes:
-- $50 if you want to fight a traffic ticket by mail
-- $10 to search for multiple court records
-- Photocopies will increase to $1 a page. That's double and even triple what it costs in some counties
