States Boost Fees on Hybrid, EV Owners


Under a bill approved by the legislature and sent to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is a proposed law creating higher annual registration fees for electric vehicles.

The bill would impose an annual $200 feet for the registration or renewal of an EV and another $400 to register a new electric vehicle according to Fox 7 TV news in Austin, Texas.
