BILL NUMBER:S2013

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation
to certain registrations of vehicles

PURPOSE: This bill will ease the vehicle registration process for the
agricultural industry by extending the length of seasonal permits and
assuring that all compliant vehicles will receive a permit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Amends the eighth undesignated paragraph of paragraph (f) of
subdivision 15 of section 385 of the vehicle and traffic law by replac-
ing "may" with "shall," and extending the seasonal agricultural permit
from "four consecutive months" to "from the first of April to the elev-
enth of November."

Section 2. Effective date.

EXISTING LAW: Currently, the department of transportation can deny a
vehicle a seasonal agricultural permit even if such vehicle otherwise
complies with this section. Also, a seasonal agricultural permit can
only be valid for four consecutive months.

JUSTIFICATION: The need for a seasonal agricultural permit extends
longer than the current four month limit. A more realistic duration
would be from April until November. Also, there is no reason for the
department of transportation to deny a seasonal agricultural permit if
the vehicle otherwise complies with this section of law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
