Proposed wildlife tax to generate ample funds

Setting aside the validity to protect wildlife, this proposed new tax has quite a generous starting point: $7 for every vehicle registered in Costa Rica (how many millions of cars does this represent at $7 a pop?); every payment for municipal taxes will be $7 more costly, and every construction permit issued will now have an added fee.  I assume this is not a one-time but annual tax augmentation.  It can be assumed since it is on base salary, it will increase each year.  Will there be a new ministry formed to regulate the mission and what will be left for wildlife protection after administration costs?  Just wondering.
