Is It Worth $10 to Save a Life?

By Benjamin Nanes

This November, Georgians will vote on adding a $10 fee to vehicle registrations, to be directed toward trauma care. Or is it a tax? If you listen to the pundits and politicians, the fee versus tax debate defines the referendum. But they’re wrong; nothing could be less relevant. Georgia needs dedicated funding for a trauma care system that will save lives and help the state’s economy, not a petty debate over what constitutes a “fee” or a “tax.” The question is simple. Is it worth $10 to save a life? The answer should be simple too.
