Colorado car fees hike could be on way to Ritter soon
DENVER, Colorado ” A proposal to raise Colorado vehicle registration fees to pay for roads and bridges could be on its way to the governor soon.
The Senate plans to vote Friday on whether to accept changes made to the bill in the House. The House version would phase in the fee hikes over three years instead of two.
Owners of passenger cars and SUVs would pay an extra $41 a year when the phase in is complete.
Bill sponsor Sen. Dan Gibbs of Silverthorne says he still needs to look over the changes but was inclined to ask senators to accept the House version. If there’s no dispute, the bill would then go to Gov. Bill Ritter, who has been pushing for passage of the bill.
