Congress is considering legislation that would assess a manufacturer fee on every motor vehicle sold, including trailers, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reports.

The fee would be assessed quarterly on manufacturers and would go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to fund its vehicle safety operations.

The NMMA recommends that members call or send a note to their elected representatives in Congress, urging that the fee be eliminated for trailers.
