Virginia's state legislators voted Thursday to repeal a $64 annual license tax on hybrid vehicles that was imposed a year ago.
A petition drive by hybrid vehicle owners helped convince legislators to eliminate the levy that one lawmaker derided as "taxing people for doing the right thing."
Virginia's House of Delegates and state Senate passed comparable bills, eliminating the tax, reports the Washington Post.
