SALT LAKE CITY — The House passed a bill Wednesday to offer tax credits for vehicles that run on cleaner burning fuels.
The bill provides a tax break to individuals and corporations for lesser polluting vehicles such as electric and hybrid cars and vehicles retrofitted to burn natural gas.
HB96, sponsored by Rep. Jack Draxler, R-North Logan, was one of the only bills this session targeted at cleaning up air pollution.
The Senate amended the bill to only extend the tax credit through the end of 2014, as opposed to 2019, as it was originally proposed.
The bill passed the House with a 59-12 vote and now goes to Gov. Gary Herbert for his consideration.
