Current Bill Summary

SCS/SBs 727 & 703 - This act permits the use of sun screening material with a light transmission of 35% or more, plus or minus 3%, and a luminous reflectance of 35% or less, plus or minus 3%, on front windows and sidewing vents located to the left and right of motor vehicles registered in Missouri. The Department of Public Safety may issue a permit to any person to operate a vehicle with sun screening with less light transmission and more luminous reflectance if the person has a serious medical condition and the sun screening is prescribed by a physician. The permit allows the operation of the motor vehicle by any titleholder or relative within the second degree of consanguinity who resides in the household.

The act does not prohibit the use of labels, stickers, decalcomania, or informational signs on motor vehicles; the application of tinting or solar screening material on recreational vehicles; or factory-installed tinted glass. This act also removes any restrictions on tinting of rear side windows and rear windows. The degree of sun tinting on vehicle windows will no longer be a part of motor vehicle inspections.

The act has an emergency clause.

This act is similar to HCS/HBs 1386 and 1038 (2002).
