Introduced by Rep. George Cushingberry (D) on February 24, 2010, to increase the annual vehicle registration tax rate by 90 percent for autos and light trucks, and 20 percent for heavy trucks, and also add an extra $7.50 additional fee for each vehicle. The tax hikes would be phased in between 2012 and 2014, along with other revisions in details of the tax schedule that have the effect of extracting more revenue from vehicle owners. The bill also increases the tax on license-plate transfers by $22, and the annual tax on historical vehicles by $24.
Referred to the House Transportation Committee on February 24, 2010.

Re: 2010 House Bill 5897 (Increase vehicle registration tax ) by crisscross on March 22, 2012 You know, there are states where the vehicle registration tax has been called in question by citizens and, by trial, their won the right to receive part of the registration tax value back. Some sums really reflect pure abuse, for a fact. One has to look around too when he dictated these regulations. There are people out there who barely have the money to change some K&N filters to their cars. Others work hard to buy a second-hand vehicle. What would it be like to add up to this the registration tax as well, at a higher level and cost than the public actually expects? Not quite a solution for the times we live right now.
