Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill that will increase motorists' fees, including a $3 increase for car registration and an increase in the smog abatement charge from $12 to $20, in mid-2008. The higher fees will raise $210m for research in alternative energy and clean-air technology. Arnold actually won the election for governor promising to roll back an unpopular vehicle fee, but a spokeswoman for the governor said this new fee is not inconsistent with that philosophy at all. OK, then.
