JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Cities and counties would be able to resume collecting taxes on cars that were not purchased at Missouri dealers under a bill passed by the Senate.

The Senate voted 28-0 to send the bill to the House on Monday.

A Missouri Supreme Court decision last year has prohibited local governments from collecting sales taxes on cars bought from out-of-state dealers or from a private sale between Missouri residents.

The legislation would allow counties and cities to immediately collect local taxes on such sales. It would also require a vote between November 2014 and November 2016 in counties and cities on whether the tax should be kept.

Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a version of the bill last year that would not have required a public vote.

The vehicle sales tax bill is SB182.
