BILL SUMMARY for HB16-1219


Votes: View--> Action Taken:
Adopt amendment L.005 (Attachment A) to House BIll Pass Without Objection

01:42 PM -- HB16-1219

Representative Ryden announced that Senate Bill 16-006, which was listed on the day's calendar, would instead be heard at a later date.

Representative Priola, sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1219 to the committee. This bill requires county clerks (clerks) to assume the responsibility of providing driver license services as soon as possible, but no later than July 1, 2021. Driver license services include the issuance of driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards as well as testing. Whenever feasible, clerks must provide driver license services at the same location that they provide registration and titling services. The Department of Revenue (DOR), which currently provides driver license services, is required to work with the clerks to identify the actions and funding needed for the clerks to assume this responsibility in the most efficient manner. This bill also requires DOR to maximize state cost savings by closing state driver license offices that are no longer needed.
