The Colorado House has approved a plan that would raise car registration fees to pay for road and bridge repairs.

Under a bill approved Wednesday, owners of cars and SUVs would pay an extra $32 the first year, $36.50 the second year and $41 the third year. The bill now goes to the Senate to review House amendments.

Littleton Democratic Rep. Joe Rice says the bill will protect as many as 8,000 jobs over the next year and create tens of thousands of new jobs.

Rice says the bill would also enable the state to repair and rebuild 126 dangerous bridges and rutted roads.
