AUSTIN -- Texans who buy hybrid vehicles could get a 10 percent rebate on their sales tax under legislation proposed Friday.
"This state must confront the serious challenge of reducing vehicle emissions -- not to mention reducing our dependence on foreign oil," said Rep. Dwayne Bohac, a Houston Republican who made the proposal along with Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas.

"This bill allows us to kill two birds with one stone by creating an incentive to drive more fuel efficient vehicles and getting older, less efficient vehicles off the road," Bohac said.

Buyers of hybrid engine or alternative fuel vehicles would be eligible for the rebate based on emissions ratings.
