From Bill’s Blog in OLD IRON NEWS September Vol 8 No 9
Well, fellow car enthusiast, it is happening as I predicted. The start of the Green New Deal. An article from The Thinking Conservative, August 5, 2021, See full article on WesternJournal.com
“Buried on Page 508 of the 2702 page Infrastructure Bill is a pilot program for a National Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee (MBUF) which is basically a long-term plan to make it too expensive to drive a car,” Short said Tuesday on Twitter.
- Line 19 (1) In General – The Secretary, in coordina-
- Line 20 tion with the Secretary of the Treasury, and con-
- Line 21 sistent with the recommendations of the advisory
- Line 22 board, shall establish a pilot program to demonstrate
- Line 23 a national motor vehicle per-mile user fee—”
This Infrastructure Bill is a sham, a smokescreen to limit our driving and our Freedom to own cars, trucks, and especially, classic cars.
Like I have been saying in some of my previous blogs: “HANDS OFF OUR CARS!”
We all need to call, email, and tweet to our Senators and our Representatives in Congress. We need to fight this bill, JUST SAY NO, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF OUR CARS!
“On page 513, the proposal says that the ‘Secretary of the Treasury shall establish, on an annual basis, per-mile user fees for passenger motor vehicles, light trucks, and medium- and heavy-duty trucks.’ ”
With the price of gas going up each week and this ridiculous Bill, some companies will go out of business, people will lose their jobs and it will make it more difficult to take care of our classic cars. The value of some cars will disappear, especially the value of our classic cars.
“In Theory, these per-mile user fees would vary by vehicle contingent upon several factors, including – you guessed it – environmental impact.”
AGAIN WE NEED TO SAY NO to this Bill #HAND OFF OUR CARS!!!
“Be Safe and Be Smart”! ~~Keep them Rolling!… Bill
