SB 1522 — Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

by Appropriations

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Appropriations Committee (AP)

Senate Bill 1522 redirects a portion of the existing fee, or surcharge, collected on an annual vehicle license registration from the State Transportation Trust Fund in the Department of Transportation to the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund in the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

 The purpose of this change is to provide a recurring revenue source to support the operations of the Office of Motor Carrier Compliance in the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in lieu of an annual transfer of funds from the State Transportation Trust Fund in the Department of Transportation.

 The recurring annual revenue impact to the State Transportation Trust Fund is estimated to be negative $18.4 million with a corresponding positive revenue impact of the same amount to the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund. 

In Fiscal Year 2013-2014, the General Revenue Fund impact is estimated to be $1.4 million, resulting from the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund service charge paid to General Revenue Fund, the State Transportation Trust Fund is exempt from that service charge. 

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect October 1, 2013.

  

Vote: Senate 40-0; House 113-0
