Minutes for HB2524 - Committee on Transportation

Short Title

Updating motor carrier laws and regulation of motor carriers by the state corporation commission.

Minutes Content for Tue, Feb 4, 2020

Staff explained the bill.


Chairman Proehl recognized Mike Hoeme. (Attachment 3) According to Mr. Hoeme this is a clean-up bill, which does not change any current policy issues, and many of the changes are simply updating and repealing old provisions that no longer apply for motor carrier licensing and regulation. The changes proposed remove outdated language and requirements such as removing regulations that previously required hearings for obtaining Commission authority to operate. Federal law has preempted many areas of these laws so this bill removes those particular provisions.

The next proponent was Tom Whitaker. (Attachment 4)  According to Mr. Whitaker HB2524 removes pre-deregulation language from the statutes including requirements for hearings, leasing or assignment of territories, pooling agreements and language concerning contract carriers which was eliminated by federal statutes.





Chairman Proehl asked if anyone else would like to speak to this bill and no one stepped forward so the Chairman closed the hearing on HB2524.
