 34        pounds .............................................................$15.00
 35        (4)  As an option to  the  trailer  and  semitrailer  and  rental  utility
 36    trailer  annual  registrations  issued  pursuant  to  subsection  (3)  of this
 37    section, the department may provide a nonexpiring  registration  for  trailers
 38    and  semitrailers,  and  an optional, extended registration for rental utility
 39    trailers.
 40        (a)  For trailers and semitrailers,  the  optional  extended-  nonexpiring
 41        registration period shall not extend beyond seven (7) years.
 42        (b)  The fee shall be fifteen one hundred five dollars ($105.00). for each
 43        year.
  1        (c)  The  license  plate  originally issued shall remain on the trailer or
  2        semitrailer until the registration expires.
  3        (d) is canceled. If the registrant does not transfer the plate and  regis-
  4        tration  to  another  trailer or semitrailer titled to the registrant, the
  5        plate and registration shall be canceled and no part of the fee is subject
  6        to refund. Provided however, the registrant may transfer  the  nonexpiring
  7        plate  and  registration  to  another trailer or semitrailer titled to the
  8        registrant. The registration document shall be the official record of  the
  9        status  of  the  extended  nonexpiring registration. No pressure-sensitive
 10        validation sticker shall  be  required  or  issued  for  such  nonexpiring
 11        license plate.
 12        (eb)  For  rental  utility  trailers, the registrant may prepay the annual
 13        registration for an additional one (1), two (2), three  (3)  or  four  (4)
 14        years,  but  in  no event shall the optional registration period shall not
 15        extend beyond five (5) years. The fee shall be as specified in  subsection
 16        (3)(b)  or (c) of this section. A pressure-sensitive sticker shall be used
 17        to validate the license plate. The license plate shall become void if  the
 18        owner's interest in the rental utility trailer changes during the five (5)
 19        year period. If the owner fails to enter the rental utility trailer on the
 20        annual  renewal application during the five (5) year period, the registra-
 21        tion record shall be purged. Any unrenewed plate shall be returned to  the
 22        department if it is not entered on the renewal application.
 23        (5)  A  fleet  registration option is available to owners who have twenty-
 24    five (25) or more commercial or farm vehicles or any combination thereof. Such
 25    owners may register all of their company vehicles with the department in  lieu
 26    of  registering with a county assessor. To qualify the fleet must be owned and
 27    operated under the unified control of one (1) person and the vehicles must  be
 28    physically garaged and maintained in two (2) or more counties. Fleet registra-
 29    tion shall not include fleets of rental vehicles. The department shall provide
 30    a registration application to the owner and the owner shall provide all infor-
 31    mation  that  the  department  determines  is  necessary. The department shall
 32    devise a special license plate numbering system for fleet-registered  vehicles
 33    as an alternative to county license plates. The fleet registration application
 34    and  all  subsequent  registration renewals shall include the physical address
 35    where a vehicle is principally used, garaged and maintained. The  fleet  owner
 36    shall report the physical address to the department upon initial registration,
 37    on  each  renewal,  and  at any time a vehicle registered under this option is
 38    permanently transferred to another location.
 39        (6)  If the ownership of a vehicle changes during the registration period,
 40    the original owner may transfer the plate to another  vehicle.  The  remaining
 41    fee shall be credited against the cost of the new registration. Refunds may be
 42    given  for  any unexpired portion of the vehicle registration fee if the plate
 43    is not transferred by the owner to another vehicle.  Any  request  for  refund
 44    shall include surrender of the license plate, validation sticker and registra-
 45    tion document. Owners of vehicles registered under the international registra-
 46    tion  plan  may request a refund of the unexpired portion of the Idaho vehicle
 47    registration fee by presenting evidence from the base  jurisdiction  that  the
 48    license  plate, validation sticker and registration document have been surren-
 49    dered. A license plate shall not be transferred to another owner when the own-
 50    ership of a vehicle changes. The owner shall obtain a replacement plate, vali-
 51    dation sticker if required, and a registration document when a plate is  lost,
 52    destroyed or becomes illegible.
 53        (7)  An  administrative  fee  of  four  dollars  ($4.00) shall be paid and
 54    deposited to the state highway account on all registrations completed  by  the
 55    department  under  subsection   (1) or (8)(a) of this section. Vehicles regis-
  1    tered under subsection (8)(b) of this section shall pay the  fee  provided  in
  2    section 49-435(2), Idaho Code.
  3        (8)  There shall be paid on all commercial and farm vehicles having a max-
  4    imum  gross weight in excess of sixty thousand (60,000) pounds, a registration
  5    fee based upon the maximum gross weight of a vehicle as declared by the  owner
  6    and  the  total  number  of  miles  driven on roads and highways in the state,
  7    county, city and highway district systems in Idaho, and  if  registered  under
  8    the  international  registration  plan  (IRP), in all other jurisdictions. The
  9    appropriate registration fee shall be determined as follows:
 10        (a)  If the owner registers vehicles under the international  registration
 11        plan  (IRP),  the  appropriate  mileage  column shall be determined by the
 12        total miles an owner operated a fleet of vehicles on roads and highways in
 13        the state, county, city and highway district systems in Idaho and  in  all
 14        other  jurisdictions  in the preceding year, as defined in section 49-117,
 15        Idaho Code, and by the maximum gross  weight  of  each  vehicle  within  a
 16        fleet.
 17        (b)  If  the owner registers vehicles under the international registration
 18        plan and determines that the average international registration plan fleet
 19        miles, calculated by dividing the total IRP fleet miles in  all  jurisdic-
 20        tions  by  the  number of registered vehicles, is less than fifty thousand
 21        one (50,001) miles, the owner may apply to the department for refund of  a
 22        portion  of  the registration fees paid, consistent with the fee schedules
 23        set forth in this section. The department shall provide an application for
 24        the refund. An owner making application  for  refund  under  this  section
 25        shall be subject to auditing as provided in section 49-439, Idaho Code.
 26        (c)  If the owner is not registering vehicles under the international reg-
 27        istration  plan, the appropriate mileage column shall be determined by the
 28        total miles the owner operated each of the vehicles to  be  registered  on
 29        roads and highways in the state, county, city and highway district systems
 30        in  Idaho  in  the  preceding year and by the maximum gross weight of each
 31        vehicle.

 23        weight in excess of the current, valid, registered maximum  gross  vehicle
 24        weight.  The  permit  so  issued shall be specific to the motor vehicle to

 35        section (8)(c) of this section is in use, an owner shall use  the  mileage
 36        data  from  the  records used to report the mileage use fee in the immedi-
 37        ately preceding year as the basis for determining the  appropriate  regis-

 17        SECTION  2.  That  Section  49-443, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
 18    amended to read as follows:
 20    TENTS.  (1)  The assessor or the department shall furnish to every owner whose
 21    vehicle is registered by that office, pursuant to sections 49-402 and 49-402A,
 22    Idaho Code, one (1) license plate for vehicles registered under the provisions
 23    of section 49-406, 49-406A or 49-408, Idaho Code, or  a  motorcycle,  trailer,
 24    truck-tractor,  or  semitrailer,  and  two  (2) license plates for every other
 25    motor vehicle. If a vehicle is issued one (1) plate only, that plate shall  be
 26    displayed in accordance with the provisions of section 49-428, Idaho Code. For
 27    vehicles  registered  under  the provisions of section 49-407, Idaho Code, the
 28    applicant shall provide one (1) plate to be displayed on the rear of the vehi-
 29    cle.
 30        Commencing January 1, 1992, the color and design of the  plates  shall  be
 31    comparable  to  the  color  and  design  of  the statehood centennial issue of
 32    license plates with blue numerals and letters on a multicolored red, white and
 33    blue background. Each license plate must bear upon its face  the  inscriptions
 34    "Famous Potatoes" and "Scenic Idaho."
 35        Every  license  plate shall have displayed upon it the registration number
 36    assigned to the vehicle and its owner and the name "Idaho" which may be abbre-
 37    viated. The plates issued under the provisions  of  section  49-402(1),  Idaho
 38    Code,  and  the  required letters and numerals, including an identification of
 39    the county in which the motor vehicle to which the plates will be  affixed  is
 40    registered, shall be of sufficient size to be plainly readable from a distance
 41    of  seventy-five  (75) feet during daylight, and each license plate and regis-
 42    tration sticker shall be treated with a fully reflectorized material according
 43    to specifications prescribed by the board.
 44        (2)  License plates shall be valid for a period of seven (7) years  begin-
 45    ning  with  the  date of issuance of new plates. At the end of the sixth year,
 46    the registered owner shall receive notice of the date upon  which  the  plates
 47    will expire. The department shall implement a plate-number reservation program
 48    beginning  prior  to  the  1999 plate issue and following once every seven (7)
 49    years thereafter, for a limited plate-number sequence  in  each  county  which
 50    chooses to offer a reservation program. Requests for license plate number res-
 51    ervations  shall be submitted to the county during the open reservation period
 52    established by the department. The department may  charge  a  minimal  fee  as
 53    determined  by the board to recover costs to the department for reservation of
  1    license plate numbers. The provisions of this subsection (2) shall  not  apply
  2    to  any license plates issued pursuant to the provisions of section 49-434(4),
  3    Idaho Code.
  4        (3)  If a license plate number has expired as provided in  subsection  (2)
  5    of  this  section and the number was not reserved, or if the vehicle registra-
  6    tion is not renewed within sixty (60) days of its expiration, the plate number
  7    shall be available for use by another registrant. To obtain a specific  number
  8    in  the  recycled license plate number file, the owner of a registered vehicle
  9    shall pay a one (1) time fee as determined by rule of the board.
 10        The provisions of this subsection shall apply only to vehicles  registered
 11    under  the provisions of section 49-402(1), Idaho Code, and section 49-434(1),
 12    Idaho Code, as it applies to noncommercial vehicles.
 13        (4)  License plates issued for  vehicles  required  to  be  registered  in
 14    accordance  with  the  provisions  of sections 49-402 and 49-402A, Idaho Code,
 15    shall be issued color coded registration validation stickers showing the  year
 16    of registration. Each registration validation sticker shall bear a number from
 17    1 through 12, which number shall  correspond to the month of the calendar year
 18    in  which  the registration of the vehicle expires and shall be affixed to the
 19    lower right-hand corner of the plates within the outlined rectangular area.
 20        (5)  License plates for utility trailers registered under  the  provisions
 21    of  section  49-402A,  Idaho  Code,  which are issued for five (5) or ten (10)
 22    years and license plates for  trailers,  rental  utility  trailers  and  semi-
 23    trailers  registered under the provisions of section 49-434, Idaho Code, which
 24    are issued for up to five (5) years, shall use the design  in  effect  on  the
 25    date of manufacture. If a design change occurs, plates from the effective date
 26    of  the  design  change  shall be manufactured using the new design. Unexpired
 27    plates need not be reissued to conform to a design change.
 28        (6)  For license plates which are lost, stolen, mutilated,  or  illegible,
 29    the  owner  shall apply for a duplicate or substitute. The assessor shall also
 30    furnish for each registration, and to validate the license plate, a  pressure-
 31    sensitive,  uniquely-numbered  registration  sticker,  except for trailers and
 32    semitrailers registered under the optional seven (7) year trailer  nonexpiring
 33    provisions  in  section  49-434,  Idaho Code. License plates issued for state,
 34    county and city motor vehicles shall be permanent and remain  on  the  vehicle
 35    for which issued from year to year, and need no renewal or validation sticker.
 36        (7)  Whenever  a  vehicle  is completely destroyed by fire or accident and
 37    the operator submits satisfactory proof of that destruction to the  department
 38    or  appropriate  assessor's  office,  the  registration use increment and fees
 39    shall be  transferred to the replacement vehicle for a service transfer fee of
 40    five dollars ($5.00), which fee shall be retained by the  registering  author-
 41    ity. None of the original fees shall be subject to  refund.
 42        (8)  The  department  shall furnish to every owner whose vehicle is regis-
 43    tered under sections 49-434 and  49-435,  Idaho  Code,  a  pressure-sensitive,
 44    uniquely-numbered registration sticker to validate the license plate, provided
 45    however, the provisions of this subsection (8) shall not apply to trailers and
 46    semitrailers registered under the provisions of section 49-434(4), Idaho Code.
 47        (9)  The  board  shall have authority to require the return to the depart-
 48    ment of all license plates and registration stickers upon termination  of  the
 49    lawful use of them by the owner.
 50        (10) The board may promulgate such rules as are necessary to implement the
 51    provisions of this section.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                      STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                            RS 16557

This proposed legislation will reduce the amount of time and
paperwork needed by both the Idaho trucking industry and the
Department for registration of commercial trailers. It will help
the Idaho trucking industry avoid citations and the need to
purchase temporary trip permits due to expired trailer

                          FISCAL NOTE

Approximately 1,200 7-year plates are currently issued annually
to renew trailer registrations at a cost of $112 ($105
registration fee, $4 administrative fee and $3 plate fee). The
current $112 fee averages to $16 annually (112 divided by seven
years), resulting in average annual revenues of $19,200 per year.
If all 1,200 7-year plate owners converted to the permanent
plate, the loss of revenue to the Highway Distribution Account,
starting in fiscal year 2014 and each fiscal year thereafter,
would be $19,200.00 annually. This includes $18,000 annually in
registration revenue, $700 annually in administrative fee revenue
and $500 annually in plate fee revenue. This loss will be partly
offset by the elimination of administrative costs associated with
the 7-Year plate program as follows: 

Printing costs: $1,200 annually
Programming and system maintenance: $1,000 annually
Plate production costs: $4,200 annually
Envelopes and postage: $800 annually
Total Savings: $7,200 annually (including first seven years) 

Net Loss to HDA after 7 years: $12,000 annually
