Senate Passes $395 Million Motorist Fee Tax Cut

The Florida Senate passed a tax cut of nearly $400 million on Tuesday. The tax cut will roll back motorist fee increases approved by the Legislature in 2009.

It passed the Senate with a unanimous vote of 40-0. Gov. Rick Scott has pushed for the $395 million in tax cuts as a top priority as part of his $600 million tax cut pitch for Florida families. 

Should the Florida House concur with the Senate, average motorist fees would be reduced by about $25 per vehicle. 

The fee will kick in in September, with most motorists getting the break in 2015.
