Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 785 - This act increases, from 100 miles to 150 miles, the radius within which land improvement contractors' commercial motor vehicles, local log trucks, and local log truck tractors may operate in certain circumstances (Section 301.010(27), (29) and (30)), and modifies a reference in the statute on extended distance log truck permits to refer to the radius specified in the definitions section rather than a specific number (Section 301.062).

The act also repeals the requirement that local log trucks carry a load with dimensions not in excess of 25 cubic yards per two axles with dual wheels (Section 301.010(29)).

Lastly, the act specifies weight limits for local log trucks, specifies or relocates weight limits for local log truck tractors (Section 304.180.14), and provides for weight-based penalty amounts for load-limit violations involving local log trucks or local log truck tractors (Section 304.240).

This act is identical to provisions in the truly agreed to and finally passed CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 1720 (2022), similar to HB 1962 (2022), identical to provisions in the truly agreed to and finally passed SS#2/HB 661 (2021), and similar to HCS/HB 1270 (2021), provisions in HCS/SB 38 (2021), provisions in HCS/SS/SB 46 (2021), provisions in HCS/SS/SB 89 (2021) and provisions in HCS/HB 307 (2021).
