The Texas Association of Business is pushing for the legislature to raise vehicle registration in the state by 50-dollars.

Bill Hammond, the association's president, tells KETK the added revenue will go to making Texas roads less congested, and help build new roads across the state.

He says although the money may seem steep,  Texas drivers will save an average of $1,500 a year.

The state legislature will meet and hear this proposal in January.

So what is your take, is this good for the state?

The only way this would be fair to the tax payer is if it were based on average miles driven per year on Texas roadways and if the new roads being built were not toll roads. The toll trolls are making money on roads we are paying for.

Bad idea. Most people are in hardship already and on a fixed income this is impossible for the elderly and sick.
