The cost of registering a car in Nevada might soon be going down.


Democratic Assemblyman Richard Carrillo is sponsoring Assembly Bill 326, which was introduced in the Nevada Assembly on Monday.


The measure would speed up the depreciation timeline for cars for the purpose of determining the governmental services tax rate, which is a major component of vehicle registration fees.


Carrillo said Nevada vehicle registration rates are exorbitant, and said his bill would help give the middle class a break.


The concept was outlined in the Nevada Blueprint, a document released last week that laid out Democratic priorities.


The governmental services tax helps supply the highway fund and pay for infrastructure projects. Carrillo said shortfalls there needed to be addressed eventually, but said the priority now should be helping the middle class.  (AP)
