Transportation Omnibus Bill passes committee

A bipartisan transportation policy omnibus bill passed the Transportation Finance Committee this week. It includes several non-controversial bills heard earlier in the session and otherwise necessary changes to statute.

Some of the policy changes include new temporary license plates, a privacy provision to prevent requiring drivers involved in a collision to share their residential address, an extension of drivers’ license expirations, and a safety provision to require school buses to use their warning lights when dropping off meals for students. The bill is anticipated to be heard in the Rules Committee this week and by the entire Senate next week. (SF 3255)
