Page 187, after line 53, insert:

"O. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter 21 of Title 46.2, the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles shall be authorized to grant temporary authority to a motor carrier to transport property for compensation on an intrastate basis utilizing a digital platform that connects persons seeking a property transportation service with persons authorized by the motor carrier to transport property.  Such temporary authority shall be subject to such reasonable conditions as the Commissioner may impose, and shall be valid only for passenger cars and pickup or panel trucks, as those terms are defined in § 46.2-100, which vehicles shall not be required to be issued for-hire license plates under § 46.2-711.  Such temporary authority, unless suspended or revoked, shall be valid for such time as the Department shall specify, but such authority shall not extend beyond 130 days following the adjournment of the next regular session of the General Assembly and shall create no presumption that corresponding permanent authority will be granted thereafter."


(This amendment authorizes DMV to issue temporary operating authority for businesses engaged in the transportation of personal property. Because that item was not set out in House Bill/Senate Bill 29 as introduced, it is the intent of the General Assembly that the item will be revised upon enrolling.)
