Arizona governor OKs auto fee boost to end raid on road cash

The Washingon Times + 237 other

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has signed legislation that boosts vehicle registration fees in an effort to end raids on dedicated local highway funding. The bill signed Wednesday raises annual registration fees by about $18 and also eliminates the current super-low fee for alternative fuel vehicles. Fees for electric cars could soar from an average of $41 to $410. The bill by Republican Rep. Noel Campbell of Prescott and Sen. Bob Worsley of Mesa would raise about $148 million a year to fund the state Highway Patrol. That would free up nearly $100 million currently taken from a highway repair fund that has left counties and rural cities without sufficient money to repair their roads. The extra cash could help balance other parts of the budget, including education funding. Copyright © 2018 The Washington Times, LLC.

New York Post + 3 other

President Trump on Wednesday was poised to win his travel ban case at the Supreme Court, where conservative justices signaled they would likely uphold his authority to block people from several majority-Muslim countries from entering the US. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy, a frequent swing vote on the nine-member high court, both indicated they would not second-guess Trump in matters of national security. The ban’s challengers – led by the state of Hawaii — almost certainly need one of those two justices if the court is to strike down the ban, which Trump…
