Central Florida leaders to vote on pay-per-mile study

When was the last time a politician promised to traded a tax for a tax and kept the promise?

It is going to cost the taxpayer a million dollars for a company to find out how to tax a hybrid vehicles and/or electric vehicles?

I can do this “For Free”!

Add the tax to the Electric meter and add the tax to Fuel Cells for vehicles?

Do not approve a meter for charging electric vehicles unless this new software is added into the meter.

How do we now tax a fossil fuel vehicle?

DUH

Is this country’s finest trying to tell me that they know how to tax the consumer buying gas and diesel and cannot figure out how to tax the consumer filling a battery or replacing a fuel cell?

Give me a break!

When was the last time a politician promised to traded a tax for a tax and kept the promise?

Must better and more to the point!

When was the first time a politician promised to traded a tax for a tax and kept the promise?

We do not know because it hasn’t happened yet and you can bet your life savings on the fact that it will not happen with this group of officials given their past track records!

The reason given is because of the less amount of taxes because people are switching from fossil fuels to hybrid and electric vehicles

Leaders said the extra revenue will go toward road improvements because the current gas tax may not support road improvements as more drivers choose electric and hybrid cars.

“Revenue is declining because (of) hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles that do not pay a fuel tax,” said Eric Hill of Metro Plan Orlando, the metropolitan planning organization for Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties.

Metro Plan Orlando board members are considering a new pay-per-mile tax system.

It’s a controversial proposal that’s getting attention from lawmakers.

Instead of being taxed at the gas pump, drivers would pay a mileage fee.
