Bill Summary Details

Fees/Electric Vehicle (Support) 

CS/CS/SB 140 (Brandes) and HB 819 (Learned) create additional fees and a licensing tax for electric and hybrid vehicles. Sixty-four percent of the proceeds from these additional fees and taxes is deposited into the State Transportation Trust Fund, and 36% of the proceeds goes to the county where the vehicle was registered. Until June 30, 2024 the funds going to the county must be used to provide publicly available infrastructure for charging electric vehicles. Starting July 1, 2024, the funds shall be distributed to Board of County Commissioners and municipalities within the county in proportion to the previous month's distribution of the local option fuel taxes. Local governments must use the funds for transportation expenditures. (Taggart)
