(AP) - The state Senate has approved a bill authorizing hazardous duty pay for state transportation workers.

The bill, which would cost taxpayers an estimated $2.5 million annually, was approved on a 13-8 party line vote Thursday, with one Republican joining majority Democrats. It now goes to the House.
