This proposal provides for a $10.00 trauma charge to be imposed annually on each motor vehicle designed to carry ten or fewer persons that is used for the transportation of persons, including pickup trucks, motorcycles, sport utility vehicles, and passenger vans. The trauma charge would be collected together with license tag and registration fees. The proceeds of the trauma charge would be placed in a trauma trust fund and used for trauma care purposes specified by law. Proceeds would not have to be placed in the general fund of the state treasury but would instead be placed in the trust fund; and any amounts in the trust fund not expended at the end of a fiscal year would not lapse to the general fund but would rather remain in the trust fund.
A copy of this entire proposed constitutional amendment is on file in the office of the judge of the probate court and is available for public inspection.
Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to impose an annual $10.00 trauma charge on certain passenger motor vehicles in this state for the purpose of funding trauma care?
