Introduced by Sen. Ray Basham (D) on March 17, 2009
To authorize a voluntary annual $10 vehicle registration surcharge ($5 for motorcycles) on non-commercial vehicles. This would replace state forest, park and boating access fees for residents. Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Natural Resources & Environmental Affairs Committee on March 17, 2009
Reported in the Senate on May 12, 2009
With the recommendation that the substitute (S-6) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
Substitute offered in the Senate on November 12, 2009
To replace the previous version of the bill with one that makes the voluntary registration surcharge an "opt-in," rather than an "opt-out." In other words, Secretary of State employees would ask vehicle owners whether they wanted to pay the extra amount, rather than automatically tacking it on to registration taxes.
The substitute passed by voice vote in the Senate on November 12, 2009
