Oregon lawmakers are trying to surpass voters and pass this into law on their own. It's called the House Bill 2328. They are trying to create a Vehicle Road Usage Charge fee if you drive 14,000 miles or more in your electric vehicle. Every year you would have to pay at least $90 to keep your vehicle because 'electric cars hurt the gasoline economy in the state of Oregon' and 'damages the gasoline tax fund that helps improve roads' The bill also requires the development of an option of tracking and reporting miles driven that protect drivers’ privacy. That option is likely to rely on technology to transmit remotely miles driven as recorded by the vehicle’s odometer If passed, it will go to effect 2014 ----------------------------- Good idea or bad? And using technology to track and submit mileage? Why not register and tax bikes? They avoid gasoline and pay no taxes towards the roads.
