2013 House Bill 4630

Senate Roll Call 936: Passed

To increase vehicle registration taxes on heavy trucks, on cars after the first year of ownership, and on electric vehicles. Heavy truck owners would pay around $50 million more each year, and other vehicle owners $150 million more as the current fleet ages and the change is fully realized. However, that will only happen if voters approve increasing the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent in a May 5, 2015 election (see House Joint Resolution UU). Both measures are part of an approximately billion tax hike package that would generate $1.2 billion more each year for road repairs.
