HB3129 by King, Ken (Relating to the operation of vehicles transporting milk; authorizing a fee.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to issue a permit that authorizes the operation of a vehicle or combination of vehicles used to transport milk at a gross weight that is not heavier than 90,000 pounds. The bill would require the application for this permit to designate the counties in which the applicant intends to operate. The fee for this permit would be $500 and the permit would be valid for one year. The bill would authorize the DMV to issue a permit valid for less than one year and direct the fee be prorated to reflect the term of the permit. Of the fees collected, 50 percent would be deposited to the credit of the State Highway Fund and 50 percent would be split among the counties the permit holder listed in the application as counties where it would operate. The bill would require the Comptroller to distribute the amount due to each county for deposit to the credit of the county road and bridge fund at least once each fiscal year.
Based on the information and analysis provided by the DMV and the Comptroller's office, it is assumed implementation of the bill would not result in a significant impact to state revenue and any costs could be absorbed within existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
