L.O Report May 2017

 

Things to watch

 

HB4306 – Increase motorcycle endorsement fee $2.00 for the Safety Education Fund

          24 co-sponsors

          Passed Transportation Committee, 14 yes – 0 no.

          A floor vote was attempted, but opposition from the Republican Caucus stated this is a tax increase.  It is a user fee created for “Look Twice Save A Life”.

          The cost is an extra one-time $2.50 on the original motorcycle endorsement and $2.00 on the 4 year renewal. This would raise the plate fee from $23.00 to $25.00 with $2.00 going to the current Motorcycle Safety Fund.

 

SB160 – Autocycle passed.  Expect a possible compromise bill.

 

SB240, 241 – Introduced by Region 11’s Senator Steve Beida.  Bills are to change the make-up of the MCCA Board.

          These bills would mandate a yearly audit and subject MCCA to the Provision of Open Meetings Act and FOIA.

          Bills are currently in the Senate Insurance Committee.
