NOVA gas tax appropriation

The Washington State Legislature will probably be increasing your gas taxes.

If/when that happens it will be important to make sure the nonhighway and offroad vehicle activities (NOVA) account appropriation portion of the tax increase is adjusted accordingly so we get our fair share.

Ask your Legislators, if they raise gas taxes to please support amending RCW46.09.520(1) to keep the offroad vehicle amount in alignment with the actual tax amount of the gas tax increase.

If you donít know who your legislators are or how to contact them, follow this link.

Are they running it with the Transportation budget, and is it going through the House or Senate?

Do we have proposed amendatory language ready to offer?

The good news is that we do have a bipartisan list of friends on the committee, including Chair Rolfes.

The not so good news is that we have some less than OHV friendly people there too, so you would be doing us a big favor if you could give us some "talking points" targeted to ease the opposition from the folks who hate you bunch of "bunny killers."

Additionally, this would be an excellent opportunity to ask that motorcycles be exempted from the weight fee schedule. Classifying a 600# bike with 4,000# vehicles is ludicrous.

We are not asking for anything extra, just would like this technical correction to keep the appropriations in line with the taxation level.
