I suspect you'd have to pay the monitoring & enforcement agents a lot.

The proposed is meant to be Satiric. 

The female lawmaker didn't write it so it would pass, rather to expose hypocrisy in the recently proposed laws on woman's reproduction.

It's bad enough that we're self-harming...now we have to pay on top of what we already pay?  ^_^

democrats would totally label it as "emissions", probably worried about the atmosphere too.

I am the sun so high above.

I for one would be willing to pay $4.50 each time..

if I had to. 

Maybe an extra $3 on the weekends..

but no more then that

and I'd want it to be tax deductible,

probably save as much as my mortgage.
