Coming up in Committee: One Bill Scheduled to Be Heard Tomorrow (Relating to Car Tax Valuations)

The Rhode Island House of Representatives Municipal Government Committee is scheduled to hear a bill tomorrow that would, according to the official description, change the car-tax valuation “so that the assessment of used motor vehicles would be based on the average trade-in price, rather than retail price” (H7098).
All five of the bill’s sponsors (Joseph McNamara, Robert Flaherty, Eileen Naughton, David Bennett, and Frank Ferri) represent the City of Warwick where — probably not coincidentally — community members have been very active in seeking to have the valuation rules changed.
Folks who have been active on this issue are invited to comment on whether this bill makes the change to car tax valuation rules that they have been seeking.

Pathetic we are even talking about a tax on a rapidly depreciating personal property.
The power to license is the power to tax. One reason we should never hive firearm licenses.
