HB 431 (BR 1228) - J. Coleman

     AN ACT relating to traffic regulations.
     Amend KRS 189.270, relating to special permits to exceed weight and dimension limits on highways, to establish a statewide permit with a single trip permit for $60 and an annual permit of $250 for loads less than 14 feet in width and $500 for loads exceeding 14 feet in width regardless of the type of equipment or vehicle being transported.


     HCS - Retain the original provisions of the bill and clarify in Section 1 that single trip and annual permits issued for overweight or overdimensional vehicles will be issued only when transporting nondivisible loads; add a new subsection (7) to Section 1 to provide that if a person is eligible for an overweight or overdimensional permit under other provisions of KRS Chapter 189, the person shall not be eligible to obtain a permit under this Act.
     SCS - Retain original provisions except repeal KRS 189.273 and 189.274 and delete reference to KRS 189.273 in Section 1(7); add provisions of HB 674 to allow annual overweight permits for loads up to 120,000 pounds if axle weights do not exceed reasonable weights.
