Legislation to mandate payment of a “recoupment” surcharge of up to $95 died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The surcharge would have levied the highest amount on owners of the most fuel-efficient vehicles to recoup taxes not collected at the gas pump. Separate legislation to require the Department of Transportation to take steps to implement a vehicle mileage user fee to tax drivers on actual miles driven also died. Both bills are eligible for consideration in 2016.
