Assembly Bill 767 Allows Counties to Increase Funding for Vehicle Theft Prevention Programs
Today Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) introduced legislation authorizing counties to increase funding for vehicle theft abatement programs. Under this bill, counties could increase their local vehicle registration surcharge from $1 to $2 per vehicle to directly fund these law enforcement programs.
“AB 767 gives local law enforcement agencies the tools they need to fight vehicle theft in their communities,” said Assemblymember Levine. “As thieves become more creative in how they carry out their crimes, law enforcement needs sufficient funding to protect those they serve.”
