OKLAHOMA CITY — Fee raising measures that were approved by the Oklahoma Legislature last session have gone into effect.

The maximum fee for pre-sentence investigations that’s charged to felons has doubled from $250 to $500. Fingerprinting and forensic science improvement fees have also doubled from $5 to $10. Felons and people convicted of traffic violations will have to pay the fees.

Lawmakers also approved a 50 percent increase for aircraft registration fees. The cost of registering an aircraft is dependent on the type and weight of the aircraft.
