House Completes Annual Tax Modification Bills

Today, the House of Delegates passed five bills, completed action on two, amended four bills, and postponed action on three.

The two bills completing legislative action were Senate Bill 462 and Senate Bill 483. These bills are routine tax modification bills, which are made each year.

House Bill 4697 adds protections for WV residents who temporarily reside out-of-state from non-renewal of licenses and registration.

House Bill 4764 requires the Commissioner of the DMV to allow the purchase of one-trip special permits to be made and paid online.

House Bill 4766 requires the Department of Highways to post signage for planned road closures 30 days before the closure if the closure will be longer than 30 days and the detour is longer than one mile.

House Bill 4783 allows optometrists to perform procedures taught or trained to them through an accredited school or college of optometry. Without this bill, licensed optometrists can only perform procedures authorized by the board before 2010. The bill also extends glasses prescriptions from one year to two years.

House Bill 4908 allows the Department of Health, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Health Facilities to enter into contracts with WVU, Marshall University, the School of Osteopathic Medicine, or the WV’s public health institute.

House Bills 4017, 4434, 4860, and 4976 were amended. House Bills 4855, 4957, and 4777 were postponed one day.
