Virginia Introduces Bill to Impose Road Usage Fee on Fuel-Efficient Motor Vehicles

 

Legislation (H.B. 623) has been introduced in Virginia to impose a $64 annual road usage fee on any other motor vehicle that has a combined city/highway fuel economy rating equal to or greater than 40 miles per gallon according to standards and regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Finance Committee (List Below) Immediately To Request Their Opposition to H.B. 623

  • H.B. 623 seeks to penalize national efforts to create a more fuel efficient vehicle fleet.  As gas tax revenues decrease due to hybrid and electric vehicle ownership, states are looking for new sources of funding for pet projects.  Owners of fuel-efficient vehicles should not bear an increased burden for choosing these vehicles.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the Virginia House Finance Committee immediately to request their opposition to H.B. 623   

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.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.
