Be aware: It's not fee; it's tax

The $18 per vehicle to be collected from proposed Proposition 21 is not a fee. It is a tax, an unfair tax, assessed unevenly. Fees are remuneration for services received, and not everyone uses park facilities. If you do not use any park services and have multiple vehicles (e.g., two cars, plus an old vehicle for hauling), you will pay much more for a service you don?t use than the person with one vehicle who uses the services extensively. That?s amounts to a tax. Chris Phipps, Auburn
