Establish $5 Vehicle Registration Surcharge for State Parks (language only)

Item 440 #2s

Item 440 #2s

Department of Motor Vehicles


Page 532, after line 34, insert:

"4. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, an additional annual fee of $5 shall be charged and collected at the time of registration of each private motor vehicle or private pickup or panel truck. All funds collected from the fee shall be paid into the state treasury and allocated to the State Park Conservation Resources Fund established pursuant to subsection A of § 10.1-202, Code of Virginia, to address deferred maintenance backlogs at Virginia's State Parks."


(This amendment imposes a $5 surcharge to the annual registration fee for all vehicles registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia with the proceeds dedicated to retiring the maintenance backlog at Virginia’s State Parks. Imposing a $5 surcharge on all vehicle registrations is estimated to generate approximately $81.0 million NGF in annual revenues for the State Park Conservation Resources Fund.)
