Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The Legislature submitted this proposal for a vote. It would repeal the state sales tax on new motor vehicles and replace the current light vehicle tax system with a registration fee based on the vehicle's age. In addition to other statutory fees, such as junk vehicle fees, etc., the annual fees would be:
Light vehicle age
$195 4 years old or less
$65 5 to 10 years old
$6 11 years old or older
Upon payment of specified fees, light vehicles could be registered for a 24-month period and some vehicles 11 years old or older could be permanently registered.
It is estimated that the replacement of the vehicle tax with a flat fee will generate approximately the same amount of total revenue. However, the elimination of the new car sales tax will result in approximately $5.5 million less revenue to the state.[1]
