The total you pay each year has several components. One one part (the biggest part) is going to double.

Because they're the ones that make the laws and they don't give a f*** about you.

It's because the state has too many expensive programs and they'd rather raise taxes than cut the programs.

The last governor was recalled over taxes and budgets and DMV fees were at the top of the list...

I've got an old truck that I keep licensed, smoged and insured for convenience... well I just registered it non-op because it's not worth the extra money for something that I drive 500 or so miles a year...

Seems just about everywhere I turn governmental fees and taxes are going up... yet just about everyone I know is earning less... certainly bringing home less... and don't get me started on 401k plans and the 60% mine went down...

We are all asked to make do with less... yet the government, in this case the DMV is demanding more... I'm glad I'm not in the car business...

If my recollection is correct the DMV fees was a big issue in the recall election. Once in office the Governator slashed DMV fees by two-thirds (IIRC).

These are either your elected officials or people who work for or are controlled by your elected officials. If people continue to vote for the "tax and spend" party then taxes are going to go up, including DMV fees. If you don't want increased taxes then maybe you should switch your vote.

To me, these increased fees represent the will of the voters. From the vote it seems that we want higher taxes and more programs. California, you got what you asked for. This is your chickens coming home to roost.

I always vote for lower taxes and decreased spending on state programs. I'm in the minority.

One comment, I don't put this on the Governator. Instead I put it on the state legislature.

Your right Lovehound. The recall issue was mainly about the DMV fees. I know after it went up, my Avalanche cost me over $900.00. Which after Arnold got in he cut it back and I did get part of a refund. But here they go again. And with the economy the way it is; these increased fees aren't going to go over well with many folks. They simply just don't have the extra money to spend right now.
I'm in the minority too. I always vote lower taxes and decreased spending.
