USA: GM to Washington State: Don’t Pass Electric Vehicle Taxation Law

For the past year, the state of Washington has been examining the possibility of putting a $100 annual surcharge on electric vehicle registrations.

A contentious issue, the house bill proposed to help the state recoup tax dollars lost as more people switch from gas-guzzling cars to plug-in and hybrid cars.

Many of Washington State’s electric car owners understand and support the tax, but the proposed legislation has found a new enemy in the form of General Motors.

In a public letter last week to Washington Governor Christine Gregoire, GM Director of Government Affairs Hal Lenox pleaded with the state to not bring bill into law.

Acknowledging that Washington State has a positive record when it comes to alternative fuel vehicle support, Lenox pointed out that the experiences of early-adopting electric car drivers are essential to the spread of the technology.
