A reasonable fee

Our state court is deciding on the controversy on $30 car tabs. I just got my bill of $88.25, which is not only reasonable, but practical.

We need monies for our roads. And above all, better management of our monies. There is waste, no one should deny that. No matter how new or old your car, $88.25 for all vehicles, like passenger SUVs and trucks, is a reasonable compromise.

Just because a person has a new car, they should not be penalized by higher fees.
