business week --
Oregon lawmakers are considering charging eight a letter to vehicle owners 1.4 three cents for each mile they drive beginning with cars from the 2014 model year.
Oregon has already been considering a program similar by placing a GPS in your car and charging you your "road tax" when you fill up. Road User Fee Task Force
opponents of the measure say that it's too early to tax electric vehicle use because they wish to make using "nonpolluting" more attractive.
the question really comes to mind in my opinion, is it really about making electric car owners "pay their fair share" or is it really just about opening the door for the GPS per mile tax debt the state of Oregon has been considering for a few years now. (See link above)
It's funny in a way... they are always screaming that we should conserve more, drive more efficient vehicles... and then whine very loudly when the revenue drops dramatically because of their efforts.
