Default Bill to Double the Gas Tax

Hey Guys, there’s a bill moving through the legislature to double the gas tax!

It's HB 2899.

Our RINOs need to know this is completely unacceptable!

Let the fraud acting as Governor know this will not be tolerated.

I'll warn you right now AZ. Don't EVER give an inch. Once you do you'll be California.

How are they assessing a fuel tax on electric vehicles? It seems unfair to raise fuel taxes these days. I recall when folks were making biodiesel for their cars a couple of folks had their state police come after them for unpaid fuel taxes.

I didn't read the Bill but someone else did and said it raises the fees on electric vehicles so they pay more of their share for road upkeep. CA recently did this for the electric vehicles as well as part of their registration fees.

This is a direct result of the decades of the greenies screaming for ever higher mpg numbers and the resultant loss of road taxes. Tax revenue kind of stayed the same due to the ever increasing cars on the road.

However those increasing numbers of vehicles were putting a lot more wear and tear on the roads now. Along with the increasing costs to build and maintain ever more roads to carry the traffic.

So on the one hand I can understand the State's need for more road funds I also think giving them an inch will result in them taking a mile. A guy I know in Phoenix told me he feels the State does a generaly good job at spending the road money. What say you guys?

I personally would be VERY minimally affected both in cost as well as benefit as I only drive about 25 miles a week for the weekly trip to town (so a tank of fuel lasts a LONG time) and almost all of that is on a county dirt road (so no pavement to fix).
