House committee passes bill that would make Illinois gas tax burden highest in the nation
That is a small portion of the entire article. The article mostly deals with the proposed gas tax. The electric vehicle registration fee is what jumped out at me. I do not understand from a liberal point of view, if you want environmentally cleaner cars, such as electric, why would you penalize someone for owning one? I understand Illinois is becoming one of the highest taxation states, lending to its demise. But you would think a very left state like Illinois would not want to do something that would curtail electric cars.
