COLORADO Gov. Bill Ritter signed a bill Monday that will raise vehicle registration fees $41 a year (Per Vehicle). Republicans weren't keen on the plan, saying it's a mistake to raise fees on Already-struggling families with this car tax during a recession of historic proportions. Monday's signing ceremony on a frontage road near I-25 drew a lone protester, Joe Stepniak, who said it violates the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights requiring voter approval of tax increases. Ritter has maintained it's a fee, not a tax hike. "Well I call it a load of Crap"
