The Regent’s ridiculous tax on persons who choose to save energy and money by purchasing economical vehicles has been repealed.
The legislation he (Governor McAuliffe–ed.) signed, HB975 from Del. Tom Rust, R-Fairfax County, nixes the annual fee on hybrid vehicles and creates a mechanism for state refunds to motorists who paid that registration fee years in advance.
As near as I can figure it, the idea was that persons who chose to conserve energy should be punished because they do not have Ford F350s or Cadillac Escillades.
Or maybe it was just nastiness for nastiness’s sake.
