'Lawmakers Should Have Done Their Homework'


I've heard a lot about the alt-fuel vehicle program. (At first), if you bought an alt-fuel vehicle, the state would refund some of the money. Now, after everyone has bought his or her alt-fuel vehicle, the state wants to back out of the original program. I think this is unfair.

Everyone who bought a car or truck bought with the intention of burning propane and cleaning up the air and getting a deal on their vehicle. All these people signed contracts; now the state is changing the law.

How unfair that lawmakers get to change the laws when they're in the process of being carried out. The people signed these contracts in good faith. Now the lawmakers are changing the law. The lawmakers should have done their homework before introducing this program.
