In case you wondered why legislators failed to even debate a bill to charge fees to trucks over 8,000 lbs. in Ada County, an excerpt from the Trucking Association newsletter gives a hint.
The newsletter went on to say,
“Registration Fee for ACHD–
After sharing our concerns with members of the House Transportation Committee regarding the proposed Ada County Highway District’s $ 75 registration fee on all vehicles over 8,000 lbs., we are pleased to report that the Committee decided not to advance this legislation.”
Sooo, trucks that cause the most wear on roads get a free ride at the expense of lightweight motorists.
