As we try to encourage car manufacturers to produce more sensitive to the environment, we realize that the gas tax and highway maintenance will need restructuring. This bill will not help.
Please consider opposing
HB 1541 (A Bill that adds fees to hybrid and electric vehicles). We oppose this bill as amended, it is a disincentive to hybrids and Electric Vehicles (EV). It does not solve the underlying problem of inadequate revenues to maintain NH roads. This bill was amended to set a $75 extra registration fee for hybrids and an extra $125 registration fee for pure EVs. It is recommended to pass but has not yet been voted on by the full House.
