Revised gas tax bill filed in the House, first vote scheduled


A revised version of Gov. Kay Ivey‘s proposed 10-cent gas tax increase was filed in the State House of Representatives Wednesday addressing concerns within in the bill.

The changes made address a provision specific to hybrid and electric car fees. In the original version of the bill, a new $250 license and registration fee was created for electric vehicles and a $125 fee on hybrid-electric vehicles. The bill has been revised so the annual fee for electric cars is now $200 and hybrid owners will pay $100 each year.

First vote

The House Transportation, Utilities and Infrastructure Committee has scheduled 10:30 a.m. vote on Ivey’s proposal on Thursday.

The entire bill is available online.
