Say NO to an outrageous fee for EV drivers

  • House Bill 3233, Senate Amendment 1/ HB 391, House Amendment 1 would, among other things, increase the annual registration fee for electric vehicles from $17.50 to $1,000. That’s a 5,600% increase!
  • The bill aims to fund improvements to roads, bridges and transit systems. That’s important—but not at the expense of a technology (EVs) that can decrease our driving expenses and our electricity costs. This fee increase is far too high. 
  • In March, CUB released a study that showed the state implementing smart EV policy could lead to $2 billion in lower electricity costs for all Illinois consumers—even those who don’t drive an EV.

CUB told the Chicago Tribune: “The proposed fee increase is way too high. It’s punitive, it’s unfair and it goes against Illinois’ transportation trends and needs. It won’t be long before we’re all driving in an EV world — out of necessity. We need EVs, not only to reduce pollution but also to keep down our personal driving costs and the costs of the power grid.”

Tell your legislators: Support smart EV policy, say NO to HB 3233, Senate Amendment 1/ HB 391, House Amendment 1.
