DENVER, Colo. - A bill sponsored by Senator Tim Neville (R-Littleton) to repeal the late vehicle registration fee passed the Senate Transportation Committee today on a 3-2 vote.
"Working class Coloradans are being hit with an unfair fee that reduces the amount of money available to pay the rent, pay for groceries, and put food on the table," said Senator Neville. "In practice, fees are supposed to go towards paying for the sustainability of the program that charges the fee, but that's not the case in this instance. It's time to repeal the late vehicle registration fee and put more money into the pockets of working class Coloradans."
SB15-018 is sponsored by Senator Tim Neville and his son Representative Patrick Neville (R-Castle Rock). Their bill will be heard in the Senate Finance Committee before moving on to a full vote on the Senate floor.
Currently, if the owner of a vehicle in Colorado fails to register their vehicle at the required time, they are hit with a $25 late fee every month the payment is late. The late vehicle registration fee is capped at a $100 fee.
