Sen. Ebbin, Del. Surovell to Deliver Hybrid Tax Petition to Gov. McDonnell
Local lawmakers will deliver a petition Monday morning to repeal the hybrid tax.
Del. Scott Surovell (D-44th) and Sen. Adam Ebbin (D-30th District) will deliver a petition to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell in Richmond Monday morning from residents who want to repeal the hybrid vehicle tax.
The Virginia General Assembly recently passed HB2313, which includes a $100 tax on hybrid vehicles. In late February, Surovell and Ebbin started an online petition against the hybrid tax. The petition garnered slightly less than 7,000 signatures as of Sunday afternoon, according to a Facebook update from Surovell.
"The $100 hybrid tax punishes virtuous behavior, bears zero relationship to reduced road taxes paid, and disincentives energy independence," Del. Surovell said in a column published on Patch in Februrary.
