METHODOLOGY:

This bill lowers registration fees for motor vehicles in car and truck rental businesses to 1/3 of the registration fee determined by the corresponding weight chart under RSA 260:141.  While the Department of Safety assumes municipal permit fees would remain unchanged under the proposed legislation, it is unable to estimate costs associated with system programming changes in FY 2018  to the State and municipalities.  However, pursuant to RSA 235:23, not less than 12 percent of the total motor vehicle fee revenue collected in the previous year is distributed to municipalities by the Department of Transportation as highway block grants.  Therefore, this bill would result in an indeterminable decrease in State highway fund expenditures and local revenues each year beginning in FY 2019.
