Fla. Governor Pushes to Roll Back Auto Fees

Gov. Rick Scott’s push for a $400 million rollback in car and truck tag fees is drawing support from motorists and lawmakers as it revives a vote that many Republican lawmakers would rather forget.

In Tampa Thursday, Scott called on the Legislature to reduce the cost of most annual auto registrations by scaling back fees that were raised in 2009 to patch a huge budget deficit.

“We’re going give you back that 54 percent increase you saw in 2009,” Scott said. “It was never government’s money. It’s your money.”
