Contact Senators To Support SB 1434

A bill to fully repeal the Commercial Distribution Fee (CDF) is scheduled to be heard this Thursday afternoon in the Senate Revenue Committee.  SB 1434 will fully repeal the truck registration surcharge that was put in place by the legislature and former Governor Rod Blagojevich in 2003.  The CDF was originally a thirty-six percent surcharge on the registration of any Illinois license plate over 8,000 pounds.  Legislatio in 2004 reduced the CDF to 14.35% but it was never fully repealed.  SB 1434 will repeal the entire CDF amount saving truckers as much as $400 per truck per year.  The bill is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Revenue Committee this Thursday, March 5.  IFCA is urging our members to contact the Senate Revenue Committee members and urge them to support SB 1434.  If the following committee members are in your district please contact them and urge them to support SB 1434.
