"That's going to be about as welcome with taxpayers as a skunk in a space capsule," said Kris Vosburgh, executive director of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. - ABC LA

Opponents say the government already has money that is set aside for road repairs, and they question raising more fees.

"We do have potholes, we do have infrastructure problems, but we must demand that Sacramento make better use of those significant dollars that we already provide," said Vosburgh.

The last time the Vehicle License Fee went up, the backlash led to the recall of Governor Gray Davis.
