Yeah. I remembered paying that the one time I rented a car from the airport. Luckily I only had to rent for a day.

I would guess there will be another fee added when the new airport opens.

When autonomous Uber/Lyft vehicles come around, they will undercut these airport rentals in price and the fees will evaporate if not replaced.

Price isn't the only reason someone chooses to rent a car rather than pay someone/something to drive them around. It's nice to be able to just hop in and go instead of waiting for an Uber to show up.

All revenue that SB 262 will generate is constitutionally required to be used to maintain roads, bridges, and the overall transportation system.

One of the biggest lies government tells people.  Pick a need or want that most people desire and then claim that the latest tax hike is for that.

Money, of course, is fungible.  When analyzing any tax hike, think of the worst, most counter productive, wrong-headed, and silly thing that level of government does and understand that the tax hike is going to that.

Yess, they will "supplant" by taking already designated highway funds and sending them elsewhere.  OK does that all the time.
