Sacramento County backs higher marriage certificate fee for domestic abuse program - Sacramento Bee

Sacramento County supervisors on Tuesday backed a proposal to increase fees on marriage certificates and other vital records to help pay for domestic abuse programs.

Supervisors voted 5-0 to co-sponsor state legislation that would enable the county to impose the additional charges, with Roberta MacGlashan offering the only resistance. She said opposition by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association concerned her and would have to be considered if a fee increase comes back to the board.
