Rick Scott Cheers Senate's Support for Vehicle Registration Fee Cut
Gov. Rick Scott cheered the news that the Florida Senate passed his call to roll back almost $400 million in vehicle registration fees without opposition on Tuesday. The proposal is one of Scott’s chief legislative goals this session.
“I want to thank Senate President Don Gaetz, Sen. Joe Negron and members of the Florida Senate for their unanimous support to roll back the 2009 tax increase on vehicle registrations,” Scott said. “This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets. It’s critical to our ‘It’s Your Money Tax Cut Budget,’ which cuts taxes, pays down debt, and cuts government waste. Today’s vote is great news, and we’ll continue working with the Legislature to let families keep more of their hard-earned dollars.”
