NATIONAL MOTOR LAW.
The New York Times
December 17, 1922
Efforts will be made this season by the American Automobile Assocation, through its legislative activities, to obtain greater national reciprocity for motorists and the elimination of discriminatory war excise taxes against automobiles, trucks and automobile accessories. M. O. Eldridge, the Executive Chairman, explains that the adoption of this policy would in no wise affect the attitude of the District of Columbia Division of the association toward obtaining reciprocity with Maryland through a gasoline tax in lieu of the present horsepower tax on automobiles in the district.
Mr. Eldridge cited the fact that the Supreme Court of the United States in two decisions has ruled that automobiles traveling traveling from one State to another are classed as interstate traffic, and that under the Interstate Commerce law Congress has a right to regulate such traffic. He calls attention to the difference in automobile laws of various States.\
