Senate Bill 112 as substituted and reported by the Committee on Ways and Means General Fund would reduce the current additional license tax and registration fee of either $200 or $100, established for battery or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, respectively, pursuant to the Rebuild Alabama Act, to $50 for electric low speed vehicles (LSV) that are registered and operated on the public (non-interstate) highways of this state. Based on the number of LSV's registered in fiscal year 2020, beginning January 1, 2022, this bill would reduce LSV license tax and registration fee receipts to the following funds by the following estimated amounts:

Public Road and Bridge Fund$20,000
Counties and Municipalities$10,000
Rebuild Alabama Fund$10,000

Additionally, this bill establishes that the Alabama Department of Revenue is responsible for the distribution of the additional annual license and registration fees for electric vehicles beginning October 1, 2021, which will increase the administrative obligations of the department by an undetermined amount.
