People can sign a car tab fee petition at the Central Washington State Fair
YAKIMA Wash. -- Few people love paying those car tab fees every year.
A man with local roots is camped out at the state fair today pushing his plan to make those fees the same statewide.
Initiative car tab activist Tim Eyman came out to the fair to inform people and collect signatures for a petition to get rid of the current car tab fee and tax every vehicle in Washington at a flat $30 dollar rate.
Eyman says this is a battle he has been fighting for years now and is hoping that this year he can collect a minimum of 300,000 signatures in favor of the $30 car tab fee.
“You hear people saying what ever happened to our $30 car tabs my car tabs are $60, $80, $100 $120 dollars and they’re going back up again so were doing a new initiative to bring them back down again," said Eyman.
Currently Yakima city council members are in the process of voting for a $19 increase on car tab fees.
The increase will help pay for city projects such as major sidewalks and road improvement projects.
Eyman says all people have to do is stop by at their booth, sign the petition and tell their friends about it.
Whoever gets 1,000 signatures or more will receive a free T–shirt.
