The finance committee stripped the governor’s plan from the budget and inserted their own proposal on an 11-5 vote Thursday night. The GOP proposal doesn’t raise the gas tax but it does increase title fees by $95, increase the $75 registration fee most car owners pay to $85, impose a new $75 fee on all hybrid vehicles and shift revenue from the petroleum inspection fee the state imposes on every gallon of gas to road projects. The plan also would limit spending on security for Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, the state’s first African American to hold the post.
