Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 521 - This act removes a weight restriction on certain vehicles that are designated for farm use (Letter F Plate). Under current law, commercial motor vehicles operated in intrastate commerce that are licensed for a gross weight of 60,000 pounds or less when used exclusively for transporting solid waste or 42,000 pounds or less when bearing a letter F plate are exempt from certain commercial motor vehicle laws. This act removes the 42,000 pound limitation so that any commercial motor vehicle licensed for a gross weight of 80,000 pounds or less that is operated in intrastate commerce and bears a class F plate is exempt from the delineated commercial motor vehicle laws in Section 307.400.
