NEVADA DEMOCRATS: LOWERING CAR REGISTRATION FEES PUTS MONEY
IN NEVADANS’ POCKETS
CARSON CITY - Today, the Assembly Transportation Committee will hear Assembly Bill 326, which would lower annual car registration fees. The bill increases the rate of annual depreciation used to calculate the fee. AB 326 will be presented by Assemblyman Richard Carrillo.
“Nevada has some of the highest, car registration fees in the country,” said Assembly Democratic Leader Marilyn Kirkpatrick. “One of the easiest ways to give Nevada families a break is to cut those fees, and do what we can to make sure that more money ends up in the pockets of middle class families.”
“Lowering these fees has been a bipartisan priority in past sessions, and we see no reason why that can’t be the case again,” said Senate Democratic Leader Aaron D. Ford. “Passing AB 326 sends the message that we won’t balance our state’s budget on the backs of middle and lower income Nevadans.”
Lower car registration fees is one of the priorities articulated by Assembly and Senate Democrats in the Nevada Blueprint, a legislative agenda designed to grow Nevada’s middle class. The Blueprint was released in early March.
