Legislation (S.B. 629) authorizing a county or municipality to impose an annual surcharge for the registration of a motor vehicle will be considered by the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee on February 19, 2014.
We Urge You to Contact Senate Budget and Taxation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to S.B. 629
- S.B. 629 provides for a surcharge up to $20 per year and requires that revenue from the surcharge be used for transportation development purposes.
- S.B. 629 makes no special exception for hobby cars such as street rods and historic vehicles that constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet, are infrequently operated and deserving of lower taxes and fees.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Maryland Senate Budget and Taxation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to S.B. 629.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
