Virginians who drive hybrid vehicles could soon be paying lower taxes.
The Virginia Senate voted 37-1 this week to repeal a $64 annual fee on hybrids.
The tax was part of a massive transportation funding bill passed last year. It was originally set at $100 but reduced by former Gov. Bob McDonnell.
Critics of the tax say it unfairly punishes drivers who are trying to use less gas. Since the tax went into effect last summer, state records show that more than 75,000 drivers have paid the $64 fee.
The repeal has already passed the House of Delegates and Gov. Terry McAuliffe has indicated he will sign it into law.
