New Hampshire lawmakers are considering two opposing plans for bolstering state highway revenues.
Lawmakers heard two bills on Tuesday that propose new systems for vehicle registration fees in the state in response to a decline in gas tax revenue and road maintenance funding, New Hampshire Public Radio reported.
One of the bills would impose higher fees on more fuel efficient vehicles. The bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Norman Major, of Plaistow, said officials need to find ways for vehicles that use less gas and generate less gas tax revenue to pay into the highway fund.
