As I pointed out in a post earlier today, John Kasich’s recently-released transportation budget added a new fee that would cost Ohioans – primarily car dealerships (yes, small businesses!) $31.5 million dollars a year in title fees. At the same time he eliminated a late fee on drivers license renewals that would have only cost about $4 million a year.
When asked about fee increases back in October, then-candidate John Kasich clearly said his tax cuts would outweigh any fee increases in every proposal:
“We will have no proposal where tax cuts don’t overwhelmingly outweigh anything that could be involved in a fee”
And yet here we have a proposal – his transportation budget – in which the fees are nearly EIGHT TIMES HIGHER than the cuts he is proposing. Another promise broken.
