Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


                        STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                              RS 07921
    This legislation would make changes to the Motor Vehicle Code as 
    now written to exempt from licensing requirements conveyances such as 
    three-wheeled bicycles, scooters, golf carts, lawn mowers, etc., which are 
    used by people with disabilities to access their community. People with 
    disabilities using these conveyances have been ticketed in the past for not 
    licensing the above described vehicles.
