A Bill to Limit Consumption and Conserve the Environment

Sponsored by: Senator Eric Leflore of Marlborough High School

and Representative Nicole Levay of Marlborough High School.

The average person living in Los Angles spends 136 hours in traffic delays per year. In fact, fifty percent of all congestion is a result of automobile levels that exceed roadway accommodations. To solve this problem, cities in Europe have instigated a consumption tax on vehicles entering their centers. This bill will take follow that path in an effort to reduce the traffic flow and wasted energy to a minimum.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States, that:

Section 1: Any major city whose PROPER population equals or is greater than 780,000 shall have a consumption tax established at US $1.50 per day. This tax shall be collected through a toll system similar to that of the E-Z Pass, in which a signal is sent from the car to the toll system. Money is withdrawn from an account that has been set up.

A: Yearly accounts may be purchased at US $500.00. This is a $47.50 discount.

B: Permanent residents of these cities will pay a discounted rate of US $1.25 per day, or $400.00 per year.

C: Other exemptions include energy efficient vehicles (hybrid, electric, etc.), emergency vehicles, public transportation, and all licensed taxis and coach buses towards that city.

D: There will be no taxes taken on federal holidays.

Section 2: All major cities whose PROPER population is between 500,000 and 779,999 shall have a consumption tax established at US $.75 per day. This tax will be collected in the exact same way as Section 1 describes.

A: Yearly accounts may be purchased at US $250.00. This is a $23.75 discount.

B: Permanent residents of these cities will pay a discounted rate of US $.50 per day or $150.00 per year.

C: Exemptions will be the same as stated in Section 1C.

D: There will be no taxes taken on federal holidays.
