If you're apposed to the new mandated plate fee you should fill out this petition.

As Posted by the Albany County Clerk

Good Afternoon,

I have set up an on-line petition for people to voice their opposition to the $25 license plate mandate. I'd ask that you support this effort (if you are opposed) by completing a short form petition and send this message to all in your address book. Our constituents are really upset about this fee.

The site was complete yesterday afternoon, advertised in the TU today and already has over 500 signatures.

Thanks.

This is one effed up state...if they ever go to a state tax, I'm moving out. I got mine renewed before the raise (you could renew for two years before the price increase).

Jacksonville hit its residence with "Stormwater and Solid Waste" fees, just another way for these f***ers to screw you out of your money. This city and this state flush more money by lining the pockets of special interest groups :banghead: ... I need to quit before I rant myself to death... :mad2:

Did I mention I hate this place?

The first time you let the lawmaking bastards get away with taxing anything, you've started down the slippery slope of taxing everything. Join the tea party movement, vote out as many of the bastards you can, and hang the rest.

If we hanged all the corrupt politicians in FL, there'd be no one left.

No, what's happening is that the state is mandating that everyone get "new" license plates BUT they're going to charge us $25 for them on the next registration. Then to make it worse, if you want the same plate number it's an additional $20.

I have 4 cars and at $45 per car added to the reg I'm a little upset.

BTW I also found out that most County Clerks in the state have their own petition. So you can probably visit your local DMV or County Clerk to get involved.

o that sucks. whats the usual renewal period, if there is one. also, lets say you just got a new plate 3 months ago, are you exempt or screwed?

The usual period is 2 years. The program goes into effect I think in April so anyone who comes due after April pays the fee. Anyone who just renewed or renews prior to April is good for 2 years.

So everyone will renew on their usual date.

I think it's April, don't quote me on that.

Didn't they do this to us when they switched the design of the plates?

I could be wrong but I don't believe there's ever been a fee when changing plate design.

You elected the bastards. You made your own bed. Now you have to sleep in it. The time to act is before the election, not after it. All that's required to lose your freedom is for good men to do nothing.

I was born in the 80's so I came up on that design, but I like the one we have now because Im from the Falls and it gives us recognition. Thats why Im buying custom plates on Friday. :cool:

No one elected Patterson as governor. He was appointed after our governor had a little problem. Everyone, including Obama wants him out.

He doesn't have anything to do with the license plates and fees. That all comes from the bunch of crazy bastards you call your legislature. They're as crazy as the Japanese and spend all their time on Kabuki theater. They're a joke and a bad one.

Somehow the idea has to make it into law and all he can do is suggest to the legislature what he wants and then sign the bill if it passes. He's an easy target but the lawmakers really deserve the blame.

I wish there was a movement in opposition to the new plates Missouri got. The font almost looks like Comic Sans.
