Colo. Senate considers compromise on vehicle fees

DENVER ” Colorado senators have interrupted their debate over vehicle registration fees to consider a compromise that would phase in the increase.

The money would pay for road and bridge repairs. The full Senate began debating the bill Wednesday.

The original bill would require owners of passenger cars and many SUVs to pay $32 the first year and $41 the next year.

Republican Sen. Al White has suggested cutting next year’s fee in half and imposing the full fee after three years.

Bill sponsor Sen. Dan Gibbs said he wants to make sure the proposal would still raise enough money.

Debate is scheduled to resume later Wednesday.
