2 plans to raise money for Colo. roads, bridges are dead

DENVER ” Two proposals in the Colorado Legislature to raise car fees to pay for highway and bridge repairs are dead.

One would have raised the registration fee on private vehicles by $25 a year and tacked a $6-a-day fee on rental cars. The sponsor, Democratic Sen. Abel Tapia, asked lawmakers to kill the bill Friday because of a lack of support.

The other proposal would have changed Tapia’s bill to raise the private-car fee by $10 and impose a $3-a-day fee on rentals. That plan won’t come to a vote because Tapia’s bill is dead.

Tapia says Republicans and Democrats couldn’t come up with a plan that both sides could support.

He says talks will continue and another bill could be introduced next year.
