2013 House Bill 4630: Increase vehicle registration taxes (Senate Roll Call 425)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 21 to 15 in the Senate on June 11, 2014, to eliminate the current 10 percent reduction of vehicle registration (license plate) fees for a new vehicle's second, third, and fourth years of registration. This would represent a $145 million tax increase on vehicle owners, but it would not take effect until 2016. The bill would also increase the drivers license renewal fee from $18 to $25, and increase a number of other fees on different kinds of vehicles and trailers. However, with the Senate's unwillingness to pass a related $1.2 billion gas tax increase the bill's future is in question..
