Voters in South Burlington, Vt., passed a short-term car rental that will generate revenue for road repairs, the VT Digger reports.
The tax, which passed with 66% of the votes, will add 0.5% on the current 9% sales tax on car rentals. It will cost car renters about 15 cents extra per day.
Opponents of the measure worried that the tax will deter tourists from visiting the city.
