RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The House has passed an amended version of Gov. Bob McDonnell's major transportation funding reform package. But a battle looms over a wholesale conservative overhaul the Senate takes up soon.
The substitute eliminates a $100 fee on new hybrid car purchases and requires legislative approval of interstate tolling. But it keeps other major features of McDonnell's $3.1 billion five-year plan passed on a 53-46 House vote.
McDonnell hailed Tuesday's House passage of the bill, even with Republican Del. Chris Jones' tweaks, and disavowed the Senate substitute by Republican Steve Newman. He promised to veto it should it reach his desk.
Newman replaces McDonnell's general sales tax increase from 5 percent to 5.8 percent on all retail purchases with a 5.5 percent wholesale gasoline tax. It faces an afternoon Senate vote.
