by Infrastructure Strategies Committee; Transportation & Modals Subcommittee; and Reps. Salzman, Tant, and others (CS/CS/SB 288 by Appropriations Committee on Transportation Tourism, and Economic Development; Transportation Committee; and Senators Rodriguez, Hooper, Wright, DiCeglie, Broxson, Collins, Torres, and Mayfield)

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Transportation Committee (TR)

The bill is cited as the “Safeguarding American Families Everywhere (SAFE) Act.”

The bill provides that the application form for motor vehicle registrations must include language allowing an applicant to voluntarily indicate that the applicant has been diagnosed with, or is the parent or legal guardian of a child or ward who has been diagnosed with, certain disabilities or disorders by a physician.

If the applicant indicates a certain diagnosis on the application, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles must include the designation “SAFE” in the motor vehicle record. The department may not include in the motor vehicle record personal identifying information of, or any diagnosis of, a person for whom a diagnosis is indicated.  The “SAFE” designation may be included or removed at any time upon request of the owner or co-owner.

If approved by the Governor, or allowed to become law without the Governor’s signature, these provisions take effect October 1, 2024.

Vote: Senate 33-0; House 114-0
