The Florida Trucking Association reports that legislation in that state would double state registration fees on heavy vehicles, making Florida truck fees some of the highest in the country.

According to the American Trucking Associations' State Laws Newsletter, under the bill, the existing fee of $989 a year for a truck weighing 72,000 pounds would rise to $1978.

"Worse, the resulting revenues from the increase in vehicle registration would be diverted from transportation purposes and into the state general fund," says ATA.

The corresponding proposal from the state senate is for only a 10 percent increase in registration fees, although the senate too would divert revenues away from transportation.
