Committee Votes to Streamline Hauling Regulations for Ag Producers

Committee Votes to Streamline Hauling Regulations for Ag Producers
Oklahoma’s agriculture producers in border counties would face less red tape when hauling livestock or other products under legislation approved by a House committee today.

House Bill 1485, by state Rep. Dustin Roberts, would allow the Commissioner of Public Safety to negotiate compacts with other states to implement a system of motor vehicle law reciprocity for agriculture producers. Under those agreements, the agriculture producers would be subject only to the motor vehicle laws of the state in which they resides so long as they are within 150 miles of their residence.            

“Because each state has different size-and-weight regulations for vehicles, it creates a lot of headache and bureaucratic red tape for farmers in border counties to worry about when they transport livestock or food products,” said Roberts, R-Durant. “Under House Bill 1485, they will only have to worry about one set of rules as long as they are relatively close to home.”            

House Bill 1485 was approved on a 15-0 vote of the House Public Safety Committee today. It now advances to the floor of the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
