Those prices sound like what resident fees really should be ;) haha.
I wonder how many make use of this system. I kinda feel like you're either a resident or non-resident. I'm pretty sure college students who live in MT but go to school out of state could still buy a resident tag, so who's seeing this benefit? Just reinforces fairer tag fees for non-residents and residents alike IMO vs. creating a new category of tag altogether.
But if you qualify might as well make use of the system.
