    Taxes
    Texas SB 942: Would give local governments different options for taxing vehicles to raise money to fund transportation infrastructure. The counties would be able to apply either: a gas and diesel fuel tax, a county motor vehicle sale and use tax, a real estate transfer fee, an additional vehicle registration fee, a passenger motor-vehicle sales fee and a miscellaneous fee.

    This is put forth from a SEMA (aftermarket car people) news letter. For those of you that drive something other than a Prius and live in emissions counties be prepared to fight this, or don't act surprised when you get levied with a local city tax on fuel, or registrations, etc. or all of the above.

    Yet another push from the environazis to curtail any vehicle they deem unworthy, and yet another group of people that need to be given a one-way ticket to a re-activated nuclear weapons testing grounds.

    Holy cow! I hope people are paying attention to the legislators supporting some of these insane bills. And if people even knew the true dangers to the environment. The Prius, since you brought it up, is horrible when you look at it from manufacture through it's short life cycle.

    Create the fear and stir emotion to get the money out of our pockets. :patriot:
