Car rental fees at Hawaii airports may increase under legislation heading for approval in the state Legislature, according to the Associated Press.
The House Finance Committee passed a bill Friday raising daily car rental fees from $1 to $4.50.
The money raised would go toward construction of a $230 million rental car facility at Honolulu International Airport and an overflow vehicle storage facility at Kahului airport on Maui.
Lawmakers and car rental companies say Hawaii's airport car rental facilities have deteriorated and haven't kept pace with facilities throughout the rest of the country.
Customers would be able to avoid paying the fee if they rented vehicles at other locations besides the airport.
The measure now advances to the full House after it previously passed the Senate.
