SEATTLE, WA - Most vehicle owners will pay more for their car tabs next year in a bill heading to the governor's desk that will save the state money on building a new ferry in Washington.
    
The state Department of Licensing and its agents will begin collecting a $5 service fee for vehicle registrations and a $12 fee for title transactions on Jan. 1, under the measure. The money specifically will pay for a new 144-vehicle Olympic-class vessel.
    
Two similar ferries are currently under construction by Vigor Industrial in Seattle and ferry officials and lawmakers say extending the contract instead of negotiating a new one will save money in labor and materials.
    
Gov. Jay Inslee is expected to sign the legislation.
