Description

Registration exemption for certain farm use vehicles; highway distance limitations. Increases from 50 to 100 miles the maximum travel distance allowable for travel to obtain supplies or from one part of the owner's land to another by a vehicle used for agricultural or horticultural purposes in order to qualify for exemption from the requirements to obtain a registration certificate, license plates, or decals and pay a registration fee and removes from such exemption vehicles having a gross vehicle weight rating over 7,500 pounds. The bill also increases from 50 to 100 miles the maximum travel distance allowable by vehicles used for seasonal transportation of farm produce and from 20 to 100 miles the maximum travel distance allowable for vehicles owned by farmers and used to transport wood products in order to qualify for such exemption and removes from such exemptions vehicles having a gross vehicle weight rating over 7,500 pounds. The bill also requires drivers of vehicles, trailers, or semitrailers eligible for such exemptions to maintain in or with such vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer proof of the vehicle owner's most recently filed Schedule F (Profit or Loss From Farming) of Internal Revenue Service Form 1040.
