Road kill (cont'd.)

Written by Susan Mannella on .

Here's another potential source of revenue for road/bridge repair. PennDOT just called back to say that if the Legislature raised by $1  the vehicle registration fee (now $36 per passenger car) and the driver's license fee ($26 for general drivers), Pennsylvania would collect another $13 million a year.

The payoff's not as big as a higher gas tax, but it could be another ingredient in a user-fee solution.
