H.C.R. 45



RE:
Establishment of certified low vision driver education training, evaluation and licensing program

SPONSORED BY:
Delegates Warner, Leach and Compton

DATE: March 8, 1995





The purpose of this House Concurrent Resolution is to request the appointment of a special joint committee to conduct an interim study relating to the establishment of a certified low-vision driver education training, evaluation and licensing program.

This resolution is in response to HB2643, introduced on February 24, 1995, which would have established such a program. Its late introduction prevented adequate review of vision acuity standards and other complex provisions in the bill. Accordingly, this resolution was drafted to provide for more careful examination of the issue and for the preparation of appropriate legislation to be presented to the 1996 legislative session.
