CS/CS/HB 789 — Driver License Fees
by State Affairs Committee; Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee; and Rep. Tomkow (CS/CS/SB 1694 by Appropriations Committee; Infrastructure and Security Committee; and Senator Flores)
This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.
Prepared by: Infrastructure and Security Committee (IS)
The bill provides for the payment of an additional $1 fee for a new or renewed driver license with a “D” designation or a payment of a $2 fee upon the surrender and replacement of a current driver license to add or remove a “D” designation. The fees are deposited into the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund.
The bill is linked to HB 787, which authorizes an optional “D” designation on the driver license of a person who has been diagnosed with a developmental disability.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect on the same date that CS/CS/HB 787 or similar legislation takes effect, if such legislation is adopted in the same legislative session or an extension thereof and becomes a law.
Vote: Senate 39-0; House 118-0
