Negron (R-Stuart) wants annual vehicle registration fees cut: ‘No. 1 issue at home’

State Senator and Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron (R-Stuart)

The Gainesville Sun reports on an array of legislation that will impact motorists: Few things affect Floridians’ lives as much their vehicles, and by the time state lawmakers finish their session early next month, they could significantly alter that relationship.

Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, understands the relationship between Floridians and their vehicles. He, like many other veteran lawmakers, remembers how those motorists were affected in 2009 when the Legislature dramatically raised vehicle registration fees during a budget crisis.

Negron wants to cut the annual vehicle registration fees for Floridians by $220 million.

“Voters very much want those fees to be rolled back now that our economy is improving,” Negron said. “It’s the No. 1 issue at home. It’s the No. 1 issue that people write me about.”
