Baguio City Representative Mark Go said the proposed increase in road user tax is unfair to new car owners.
The Baguio politiko explained that the proposed measure will ask car owners to pay the higher tax for years 2005 to 2014.
Proponents of the bill said the revenue from the increased tax will be used for road repairs.
Go said this would be unfair for people who were not car owners during that period.
“We are unjustly penalizing them by including inflation in the road user tax at a time when they have not bought their cars yet,” he said.
