The task force's timetable calls for the first 20 cars to be equipped with mileage recorders next February. The experiment should be in full swing by fall 2005. Later, the technology would be used to test "congestion pricing" — charging some drivers a higher mileage fee during rush hour, or in particularly congested areas, to see if they drive less as a result.
The test should be finished in early 2007. Then what?
If the experiment works, Whitty says, the task force probably would draft a bill proposing a statewide mileage tax. Starr, the legislator who chairs the panel, doubts it would pass right away.

This kind of stuff is just dumb. Plain dumb. Tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax. Is there an end to things they will not tax? Let them pass the tax. The only driving they will see are poeple driving out of their state to live somewhere else.
