TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona lawmakers are pushing back on a vehicle registration fee hike.

On Dec. 1, vehicle registrtation fees from the Arizona Department of Transportation went up $32 for most drivers, thanks to a newly enacted state law.

Citing negative feedback from constituents, several state lawmakers moved to repeal that fee hike later that month. A bill to do just that passed the Arizona Senate Monday in a 24-6 vote. The bill now moves to the state's House of Representatives.

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