Modify Language Regarding the Selling of Buses (language only)

Item 436 #1c

Item 436 #1c

Department of Motor Vehicles


Page 222, strike lines 41 through 44, insert:

"V.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection A of § 46.2-1508, any manufacturer or distributor of buses that sells buses to a local government authority or non-profit provider in the Commonwealth for the purposes of public transportation, as defined in 49 U.S.C. § 5302, shall not be required to obtain a manufacturers license from the Department of Motor Vehicles or a dealers license from the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board for such sales. For purposes of this item, "bus" means a rubber-tired automotive vehicle used for the provision of public transportation service by or for a recipient of federal or state funding allocated annually by the Commonwealth Transportation Board."


(This amendment replaces language in the introduced budget exempting manufacturers who sell buses for public transportation from the requirement of having a manufacturers' and dealers' license. The replacement language more clearly states the intended policy and is consistent with the language included in Senate Bill 281 of the 2022 session which passed both houses.)
