CCS#2/SS/SCS/SB 719 - This act modifies various provisions relating to the regulation of transportation.
BOATING SAFETY IDENTIFICATION CARD - Under this act, any person or company that rents or sells vessels may issue temporary boating safety identification cards to nonresidents to operate rented vessels or vessels being considered for sale, for a period of up to 7 days, provided that the individual meets the minimum age requirements for operating a vessel in this state. In order to qualify for the temporary boating safety identification card, the applicant shall provide a valid driver's license establishing that the applicant is a nonresident and shall sign an affidavit that he or she has reviewed the Missouri State Highway Patrol Handbook of Missouri Boating Laws and Responsibilities. The Missouri State Highway Patrol shall charge a fee of $9 for the temporary boating safety identification card. Nonresidents shall not be eligible for more than one temporary boating safety identification card. Under the act, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is authorized to develop the temporary boating safety identification card. The act requires businesses that issue temporary boating safety identification cards to transmit the applicant's information and payment to the Missouri State Highway Patrol using an electronic online registration process developed and provided by the patrol. The electronic online registration process shall allow the applicant to pay the $9 fee by credit card, debit card, or other commercially approved electronic method. The act imposes a sunset date of December 31, 2022, on the nonresident temporary boating safety identification card program. This portion of the act contains an emergency clause (see Section B). This portion of the act is similar to SCS/HCS/HB 1640 (2012). The provision is also contained in the truly agreed to versions of SB 568 and HB 1402 (Section 306.127).
MOTORCYCLE RIDER TRAINING COURSE EXEMPTION - Under this act, the successful completion of a military motorcycle rider training course that meets or exceeds the Motorcycle Safety Foundation curriculum standards by an applicant who is an active member of the U.S. armed forces, shall constitute an actual demonstration of the person's ability to exercise due care in the operation of a motorcycle or motortricycle, and no further driving test shall be required to obtain a motorcycle or motortricycle license or endorsement (section 302.173). This provision is also contained in SB 564 (2012) .
OUTBOARD MOTOR TITLES - Under the terms of this act, effective August 28, 2012, the certificate of title for a new outboard motor shall designate the year the outboard motor was manufactured as the "Year Manufactured" and shall further designate the year the dealer received the new outboard motor from the manufacturer as the "Model Year-NEW". Any outboard motor manufactured on or after July first of any year shall be labeled "Year Manufactured" with the calendar year immediately following the year manufactured unless the manufacturer indicates a specific model or program year. This provision is contained in the truly agreed to versions of SB 568 and SB 480 (2012). The provision may also be found in HB 1759 (2012)(Section 306.532).
SELLING OR ADVERTISING IN STATE PARKS - Under current law, persons are prohibited from offering or advertising merchandise or other goods for sale or hire, or to maintain any concession, or use any park facilities, buildings, trails, roads or other state park property for commercial use except by written permission or concession contract with the department of natural resources. This act provides that this prohibition shall not apply to the normal and customary use of public roads by commercial and noncommercial entities for the purpose of transporting persons or vehicles, including but not limited to, canoes (Section 577.073). This portion of the act is subject to an emergency clause.
