2012 House Bill 5300: Increase state vehicle registration tax
  1. Introduced by Rep. Jud Gilbert (R) on January 26, 2012, to increase the state vehicle registration tax by 67 percent. The tax is levied based on the weight of commercial trucks, and on the “list price” of cars. (For example, the annual tax on a car with a $20,000 list price would go from $103 to $172.). The weight-based levy on trucks would increase by 25 percent. This would extract approximately $500 million more from motorists each year. The bill would distribute a greater proportion of the increased road funding to heavily-traveled “commercial corridor” roads rather than less-traveled rural roads. This is part of Gov. Rick Snyder’s road and transit tax proposal.
    • Referred to the House Transportation Committee on January 26, 2012.

As a conservative myself.........if Gov. Snyder raises vehicle registration fees which are already very high......he will lose his next re-election bid. We will not vote for a Democrat but we will not vote for him either. The Republican Party better have someone in place of him if the party wants to remain Republican then.

 I am begining to think that Lansing has decided that the way to cure the high unemployment rate is to make it so expensive to live here that everyone will leave. If thats true your doing a great job. next you'll be taxing the taxes.
