URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Minnesota Bill to Tax Cars for Miles Traveled to be Considered on Monday, March 23, 2015
Legislation (H.F. 325) to require theCommissioner of Transportation to develop a plan to implement a vehicle mileage user fee to tax drivers on actual miles driven will be considered on Monday, March 23, 2015 by the House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee.
We Urge You to Contact House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee Members (List Below) Immediately To Request Their Opposition to H.F. 325
- According to opponents, in addition to creating privacy concerns, the bill seeks to 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.
- H.F. 325 requires the Commissioner of Transportation to submit a report on the implantation plan on a vehicle mile user fee by February 1, 2016.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Minnesota House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee immediately to request their opposition to H.F. 325.
