So, kudos to the House for passing the bill for tax credit on electric cars. The only flaw to HB74 is that this tax credit would only last one year. I’m pretty sure the fixes to our air problems will be needed longer than that! But here’s the real travesty: SB139 is asking for a fee hike for clean-fuel vehicles (“Electric cars may get tax credit, but see registration fees triple, Tribune, Feb. 12). What?

Lawmakers approved HB74 on a 59-13 vote, and sent it to the Senate. Rep. Lowry Snow, R-Santa Clara, the bill’s sponsor, said it will make people seeking to buy a new car “think twice about the incentive,” and not only buy a car for transportation but also to “help clean the air.” He said it will help clean Utah’s air and reduce inversions. “This is not entirely the answer, bu...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Registering a hybrid electric car now costs $43, but if the bill passes, it would cost $138. The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Wayne Harper, R-Taylorsville, says new roads and road maintenance are paid for by gas taxes, but because these clean-fuel vehicles use much less gasoline or none at all, owners aren’t paying their fair share for road upkeep. jnpearce@sltrib.com Twitter:...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
