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

With the recommendation that the substitute (S-6) be adopted and that the bill then pass.

To replace the previous version of the bill with one that makes the voluntary registration surcharge an "opt-in," rather than an "opt-out."
