Oregon lawmakers consider a proposal to charge drivers of electric cars a per-mile fee so they contribute to the State Highway Fund. Gas driven cars contribute through a gas tax. Kurt Geb from Lane County proposes contributing to the fund when registering a vehicle. Supporters of the tax say a flat fee isn't fair because some vehicle owners drive a lot, causing more wear and tear on state highways than people who drive a little.
