VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
January 15, 2004
S. Printed 1/15/04--H.
Read the first time January 13, 2004.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4504) to request the Department of Public Safety in conjunction with the Department of Motor Vehicles to study what types of additional drivers' licenses or supplemental qualifications or endorsements to existing drivers' licenses, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT W. LEACH, SR. for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES TO STUDY WHAT TYPES OF ADDITIONAL DRIVERS' LICENSES OR SUPPLEMENTAL QUALIFICATIONS OR ENDORSEMENTS TO EXISTING DRIVERS' LICENSES ARE NEEDED IN SOUTH CAROLINA AS A RESULT OF THE INCREASED SIZES AND TYPES OF PASSENGER OR CARGO VEHICLES WHICH MAY BE OPERATED BY INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT A COMMERCIAL DRIVER'S LICENSE, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THE REPORT SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO BOTH HOUSES OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY BY JUNE 1, 2004.
Whereas, in recent years many various types of motor vehicles have been developed by automobile and truck manufacturers including large passenger vans, noncommercial cargo vans, and other similar vehicles designed to be driven by noncommercial operators; and
Whereas, the State of South Carolina recently has developed and implemented a new type of driver's license for commercial operators with particular types of classifications and endorsements but has not substantially changed other operator license requirements; and
Whereas, given the complexity and size of recent additions to the motor vehicle fleet, it is time to review the types and kinds of noncommercial South Carolina motor vehicle licenses to ensure that they are compatible with the types of noncommercial vehicles which are being operated on South Carolina's streets and highways. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Public Safety in conjunction with the Department of Motor Vehicles to study what types of additional drivers' licenses or supplemental qualifications or endorsements to existing drivers' licenses are needed in South Carolina as a result of the increased sizes and types of passenger or cargo vehicles which may be operated by individuals without a commercial driver's license. The report shall be submitted to both houses of the General Assembly no later than June 1, 2004.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Public Safety and the Department of Motor Vehicles.
