From the article,



A vehicle-miles-traveled fee has been studied in the nation’s capital for years though previous versions have encountered resistance about forcing drivers to place transponders in their cars to keep track of mileage. But states that have experimented with pilot programs have found ways around that by letting motorists report odometer readings electronically or in-person, using plug-in devices or recording mileage with a smartphone app.

I figure that one huge issue from this would mean that there’s a ton of motivation for people to learn how to hack odometers, which means the used market will be a giant crap show. But I certainly would be motivated to find a vehicle with a non working odometer.

They will just go and read the odometer when you go to tag your vehicle and add it to the cost of the tag, you will no longer to be able to do the online tag thing have to do it in person with that vehicle present.

It's to tax the electric vehicles which don't pay gas tax basically. Only problem is it will double tax gas cars, but that's a bonus in their book.
As I understand the proposition, the tax-per-mile plan would replace the tax-at-the-pump way of generating dollars. No double taxing for gasoline powered vehicles versus single taxing for EV's.

I can't read the article, it wants me to subscribe.
I don't see how this can work unless you give the gov access to your car's computer to track you. And I know that's already happening with insurance companies, etc., but at least it's voluntary (they say).

This will punish rural and suburban people. Working people mostly.
Yup, about as voluntary as 'black boxes' in newer vehicles, license plate readers, and cameras over intersections ☹
