FLOOR ACTION:

HF 418 – Commercial Driver’s Licenses

HF418 requires Iowa to comply with federal regulations for commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) or face loss of federal highway funding. It requires the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) to check the national drug and alcohol clearinghouse to determine if an applicant qualifies for issuance, renewal or upgrade. The bill also allows an Iowa nonprofit corporation that serves as a trade association for Iowa-based motor carriers to be a third-party tester.
[4/8: 50-0]

 

HF 390 – Required notices of certain aircraft

HF 390 eliminates the requirement for aircraft owners to keep current paper registration certificates on aircraft that have been junked or destroyed by fire or accident. The change was made because aircraft registrations are now checked electronically. The bill removes outdated references to paper aircraft certificates and changes references from “returning certificates” to “providing notice” to the DOT.
[4/8: 50-0]
