DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Democratic proposal to raise motor vehicle fees to pay for road and infrastructure improvements in Delaware is headed to the Senate floor for a vote.
The bill was released from a Senate committee after a hearing Wednesday with the support of its four Democratic members.
The legislation increases the tax on car sales from 3.75 percent to 4.25 percent. Penalties for late license and registration renewals, along with several other fees, would increase substantially.
The increases would take effect Oct. 1 and generate about $24 million annually.
