HOUSE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Refer House Bill 16-1056 to the Committee on Appro PASS







11:39 AM -- HB16-1056



Representative Tyler, sponsor, introduced House Bill 16-1056. The bill, recommended by the Transportation Legislation Review Committee, broadens the records search employed by the Department of Revenue (DOR) to locate owners and lienholders of abandoned motor vehicles. DOR must perform a national records search using a qualified entity that has a national database and that can retrieve records based both on the vehicle's VIN (vehicle identification number) and registration number (license plate). The bill also increases the notification deadline, from three to five days, in which tow operators must determine whether there is an owner or lienholder registered with DOR and send notice to those parties, and clarifies that the time spent by the DOR conducting the national records search does not count against the tow operator's 10-day deadline to contact the motor vehicle's owner or lienholder.



11:46 AM -- Ms. Erin Reynolds, Legislative Council Staff, came to the table to answer questions regarding the fiscal note.
