The governor is looking to cut $500-million in taxes and fees in the upcoming year, and some state lawmakers think they've found a way to pass the savings on to most people.
Under the bill that's unanimously cleared the state Senate Transportation Committee, residents will save about $12 a year in licensing fees for every vehicle.
The driving force behind the measure, Sen. Joe Negron, believes the tax break doesn't discriminate.
With each household having between two and four vehicles, he says that equals nearly $240-million.
Lawmakers raised the motor vehicle fees four-years-ago to help collect about $500-million.
The money was used to balance the budget.
The surplus this year is projected to be about $800-million.
A state House committee today is expected to get a list of possible taxes and fees to reduce.
The tag fees will be among them.
