Q Has anyone suggested adding a road maintenance tax on our vehicle registration? My next car will either be a plug-in hybrid or all electric, which will contribute very little or nothing for repairs since they pay little or no gas tax. Yet we use the roads and should contribute to the maintenance fund.
A There is a chance of this happening. Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, has proposed raising $10 billion over five years to pay for better roads.
