Senate Transportation has two bills on Fri Feb 6

February 6, 2015

a-sanyal59-SunriseOn Friday, February 6th, at 8:00 AM the SD Senate Transportation committee will take on 2 bills.

SB 107 – SoDakLiberty Posts – Increase the period an instructor permit is valid and to revise the requirements to upgrade to an operator’s licence or a restricted minor’s permit.

Sen Craig Tieszen (R, Dist 34) and Rep Mike Verchio (R, Dist 30) are the prime sponsors. I don’t see a problem with this one. Extending the time for a permit doesn’t rush the process. I’m going through helping a second teenager learn to drive now. I can say each of the two so far has been very different in how they progress. I don’t know the reasoning behind this bill, but from my viewpoint the change makes sense.

SB 160 – SoDakLiberty Posts – Revise certain provisions pertaining to the operation of motor vehicles.

Sen Brock Greenfield  (R, Dist 2) and Rep Lana Greenfield  (R, Dist 2) are the prime sponsors. Current lights have to go on a half hour after sunset to a half hour before sunrise. This would simplify it to sunset to sunrise. Actually, what Greenfields are trying to change it to is what I thought the law was already.
