“Sticker shock for Washington’s hybrid and electric car owners: $75 fee in their new car-tab bills”

“Beginning this month, hybrid-vehicle owners in Washington state will start paying an annual $75 car-tab fee to finance electric-car charging stations they’ll never use.

“The little-known increase is labeled ‘Hybrid Vehicle Transportation Electrification’ on bills from the state Department of Licensing (DOL).”

“The hybrid fee was part of House Bill 2042, intended to promote electric vehicles and reduce carbon emissions. Owners of plug-in electric cars like the Nissan Leaf, who already pay $150 into the state roads fund in lieu of gasoline taxes, will also pay the $75 electrification fee, for a total $225,” by Mike Lindblom, The Seattle Times.
