Rep. Ken King, R-Hemphill, has filed a bill for consideration during the current ongoing regular session in Texas to impose an additional fee for the registration and renewed registration of electric and hybrid vehicles.
The bill, HB427, would collect an additional fee of $200 for electric vehicles and $100 for vehicles that use a combination of fuel and electric power, or hybrid vehicles.
The state of Texas collects a 20-cent-per-gallon excise tax on gas and diesel purchases. According to the Texas comptroller, the fuel tax generates about $3 billion annually.
He did the same thing last year but it didn't pass. If you live in another state, do you pay extra when you register your M3 yearly?
