Finance & Tax Committees

Senator Sachs is working on a proposal in the Finance and Tax Committee which would end a longtime tax credit for the insurance industry and use the $220 million in savings to reduce motorist fees for license renewal and car registration.  The proposal would reduce the cost of renewing a license from $48 to $20, registering for a first-time license from $48 to $27, and registering a car from $225 to $100.
