TUCSON, Ariz. - A bill that could drastically cut vehicle registration fees advanced in the Arizona legislature.

The state House voted 57-3 Monday supporting House Bill 2320, a which scuttles a plan to tack on annual law enforcement-supporting fees as high as $32. The new bill would cap the fee at $18.

ADOT says the funds raised from the fee go towards public safety, highway patrol operations and state highway improvements.

The vote came a month after the bill passed the state Senate. Gov. Doug Ducey must now decide whether to sign or veto the legislation.

The fee will apply to 2020 registration renewals.
