2018 Senate Bill 1258: Make state park vehicle tax surcharge the default
Introduced by Sen. Goeff Hansen R-Hart on December 4, 2018
To require a person to "opt out" of paying the optional state park "passport" surcharge that is attached to annual vehicle registration (license plate) renewals, meaning the default would be "opt in" and a person who doesn’t want to pay must actively choose not to. Under current law “opt out” is the default, and a person has to affirm they want to pay the extra. See also House Bill 6125, which would require having paid the fee to park at trailhead or forest campgrounds; under current law this applies only to state parks.   Official Text and Analysis.
