Technology and Infrastructure Committee Advances Five Bills

The Committee on Technology and Infrastructure met this afternoon. Five bills were considered and advanced.

House Bill 2530 extends the expiration of temporary registration plates from 60 days to 90 days.

House Bill 2531 clarifies that rail companies must cooperate with and receive permission from the Commissioner of the Division of Highways before they build or conduct repairs or otherwise perform maintenance on the railroad, tracks, or crossings that close state roads. This is to ensure that the traveling public has needed access to emergency services, school, and work, and is not unnecessarily inconvenienced by road closures.

House Bill 2533 allows for a permanent windshield placard to be valid for the duration of the applicant’s life.

House Bill 2171 removes the requirement that the Commissioner of the Division of Highways set standards and regulate studded tires. The U.S. DOT NHTSA Uniform Tire Quality Grade Standards regulates the safety of motor vehicles and related equipment.

House Bill 2222 prohibits vehicles from driving slowly in the left lane of a roadway except under specified circumstances.
