HB 253 fee hikes pass house; now to the senate 27 June, 2007

Posted by stoptaxing in Action Item, State.


In half full situation, you and other taxpayers have helped drop some of the tax hikes.  The gas tax and toll hikes are out. The job is not done unfortunately we have no spending reform to match the reach into our wallets.  It is time to contact your state senator and stop HB253 until there is a deal on spending reform or let it die.

This would be a good time for the often forgotten senate GOP to find its voice.  It is a group in search of identity.  Government reform for the taxpayers would be a worthy one.

Text from the Bill

This Bill increases several revenue sources for the Transportation Trust Fund. The motor vehicle document fee is increased from 2.75% to 3.25%, effective October 1, 2007, and increases again to 3.75% on October 1, 2008. The basic motor vehicle registration fee is raised from $20 to $40, effective October 1, 2007, and the related registration fees for other vehicles are also increased. Motor vehicle title fees are raised from $15 to $25. Driver’s license fees are raised from $12.50 to $25, and the fee for identification cards issued by DMV is raised from $5 to $20. In addition, permanent driver’s licenses will no longer be issued, except for renewals of those now issued, with an accompanying renewal fee increase. The Bill also includes some provisions for transitioning the DMV’s computer systems to handle these changes.
