ACHD Bond Rejected by Voters

Voters in Ada County say no to raising their vehicle registration fees.

The Ada County Highway District sponsored the ballot initiative, in hopes of raising millions of dollars for road and transportation projects in the County.

It would have raised registration fees on cars and trucks under 8-thousand pounds by 75-percent…from 40-to-70 dollars for vehicles up to two years old. Counting state fees, that means it would have cost 139-dollars to register a newer vehicle.

The vote was 3-2 on the A-C-H-D Commission to put the initiative on the ballot.

Current state law forbids the A-C-H-D from charging registration fees for vehicles over 8-thousand pounds…those are tractor trailers, heavy construction trucks and the like.

The bond measure failed by a margin of 53-point-4 percent to 46-point-6 percent.

Spring football fans are true fans

Football fans love to sit in judgment.  It’s part of the fun of watching the game.  When a pass play doesn’t work, it’s fun to turn to the guy next to you and say, “I don’t understand why they’re not running the ball.”  When a running play goes nowhere, it’s fun to say, “They should…

Worthington BLOG: Should I Leave the Republican Party? Rick Worthington 4/3/19   I look at the “old republican guard” and it’s refusal to modernize and catch up with the rest of the country.
