New Hampshire Bill to Create Road Usage Fee Dies                       

Legislation (H.B. 621) to establish a road usage fee for all New Hampshire motor vehicles with a miles-per-gallon rating of more than 22.5 will not be considered in a vote by the full House and is essentially dead for the year.  The measure had been approved by the House Ways and Means Committee.    

The bill would have required that the fee be collected at the time of annual registration of the vehicle.   In addition to creating privacy concerns, road usage fees penalize national efforts to create a more fuel efficient vehicle fleet by taxing drivers based on vehicle mileage.  As gas tax revenues decrease due to hybrid and electric vehicle ownership, states are looking for new sources of funding for pet projects.

Thanks to all who opposed this bill!
