License plates targeted in today’s ‘Maggie’s Tax of the Day’
Yesterday Ovide Lamontagne’s gubernatorial campaign pointed to a vote by Maggie Hassan to raise vehicle registration fees and today keeps the theme going.
Below is an excerpt from this morning’s release of ‘Maggie’s Tax of the Day’:
Prior to 2008, the charge for a ‘walking disability license plate’ was $1.50. By the end of the year, with Senator Hassan’s support, that fee had jumped 167% and disabled New Hampshire citizens, including men and women with disabilities related to their service in the armed forces, were for the first time required to pay the full plate fee.
The fee increase was included in 2008’s HB 1596, and the campaign further noted that moped owners now must pay the same price for registration as owners of a full-sized vehicle.
