NO FISCAL IMPACT
November 24, 1998
Scott Nachtrieb (303-866-4752)
TITLE: CONCERNING PROTECTION OF VEHICLES.
Summary of Assessment
The bill would expand the type of material that can be dropped on the highway to secure traction. Vehicles operating within a construction zone, involved in snow and ice removal operations, or emergency operations, would be exempt from the aggregate tarping requirements. Certain materials that are not susceptible to blowing would be excluded from the definition of aggregate material. Vehicles hauling aggregate material would not be required to have rear flaps. The provisions of this bill would not impact revenues or expenditures for state agencies. The number of traffic citations issued are not expected to change as a result of this bill. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
