SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 52

(By Senators Unger, Jenkins, Barnes, D. Facemire, K. Facemyer, Fanning, Plymale, Stollings and White)


[Originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure; reported April 2, 2009.]


Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the registration and operation of mini-trucks.

Whereas, Certain motor vehicles commonly referred to as "mini- trucks" are designed primarily for off-road use and do not meet the normal federal air emission and safety standards; and
Whereas, Municipalities and other political subdivisions have requested that legislation be enacted to authorize the use of mini- trucks on certain roads with relatively low speed limits for parking enforcement or other limited purposes; and
Whereas, Farmers and certain other persons have requested that legislation be enacted to authorize the use of mini-trucks on certain roads with relatively low speed limits in conjunction with mostly off-road farming uses or in conjunction with certain other mostly off-road uses; and
Whereas, The public welfare and economic benefits of allowing the use of mini-trucks for these and similar limited on-road purposes should be examined in light of the continuing need to protect public health and safety on the roads of this state; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the registration and operation of mini-trucks; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
