Bill could lead to boost in vehicle fees

By
August 12, 2014 |

SACRAMENTO — Counties will be allowed to increase vehicle registration fees to pay for fingerprint identification programs under a bill headed to the governor.

The Assembly passed AB2393 Monday on a 41-30 vote, the minimum needed. Republicans criticized the process, saying the bill is a tax-increase that requires a supermajority vote to pass.

Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael says his bill will help law enforcement agencies improve programs intended to keep communities safe.

AB2393 authorizes counties to increase fees by $1 for personal vehicles and $2 for commercial vehicles. Those fees come on top of a $46 base charge, a $24 surcharge for the California Highway Patrol and other fees counties can add.

Republican Assemblywoman Shannon Grove of Bakersfield says there is no connection between fingerprint programs and vehicle fees.

    They need to find another way to finance this with existing monies.

    Ahh gee, Mr P... It's so much easier just to add more taxes, and a lot more fun.

    Just one more way the government can get into our lives. If you check into your vehicle renewal costs you will find there is only one small tax---- the rest are all fees. Which not tax deductible.

    Ya know, with all the junk fees that California adds to everything, maybe someone ought to get a proposition together to label everything from the counties and states as a tax, and be able to deduct it from tax returns. Include a provision that the legislature can't attempt to modify or amend it, or they lose their salary and perks for the remainder of their term.

    Is that a dollar a year? A dollar a year? I know, it's the principle of the thing, but really...

    It's only a dollar but then next year they find something else and it's only a dollar and so on until it's $10. When will it stop? Well it will stop when the state quits wasting our money and starts be more responsible with the spending. We are running everyone out of the state except the illegals and they don't pay taxes but get all the benefits. Sacramento needs to wake up.
