    Sounds Great

    I Got An Email From Jack Harper A Couple Of Weeks Ago. Asking How The Buisiness Venture Was Going. I Had Wrote To Him In Support Of Your Bill, So He Must Have Confused Me With You. I Replied And Told Him He Had Me Confused With You. Didn't Have Your Contact Info, Hope He Got In Touch With You. Terry

    Positive action in one state might help convince legislatures in other states to allow these trucks on low speed roads or country roads.

    Good luck on this,

  9. What reason did the others have to vote no? Do they enjoy seeing their constituents NOT getting any relief from gas prices? I would be sure to send a letter to each "NO" vote and let them know how you and everyone you know will be voting when reelection time comes around.

    Was wondering how this bill was doing?

    Seems like ADOT is fighting this if I read this correctly.:(

    According to the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division, MVD has been gathering information on this issue over the past two months. MVD reports that last week, the Division received the following information from the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA):

    South Dakota
    Classifies these types of vehicles as All Terrain Vehicles – operated as off-highway vehicles.

    North Dakota
    Classifies these types of vehicles as Off-Highway Vehicles – operated on some public roads.

    Classifies these types of vehicles as Slow Moving Vehicles (SMVs) – Texas will not title and register vehicles as an SMV that is manufactured to travel over 25 miles per hour. K-class trucks are equipped with a governor that limits travel speed to 25 miles per hour as a condition of import, however, Texas states that if a governor can be placed on a vehicle it can be taken off and therefore Texas does not title and register these vehicles for on-road use.

    I spoke to Brian Townsend, Sen Ron Gould Staff Last Tues about the bill. He said witin 2-3 weeks there will be one more read on the bill. So far so good.

    smoothstroke, you say, "Seems like ADOT is fighting this if I read this correctly".

    Can you post the link where you read this info?

    Both the AZ Senate and House Transportation Committies had to Vote on the bill before it could be allowed for voting on the floor. The transportation committies are who write transportation laws for AZ.

    Soooo ???

    So what happened with the vote ?
    Don't leave us hanging.
    Are they now legal in AZ on city streets or not ?
    I read this thread 3 times and i am still confused.

    It passed in both the house and senate. It has to be read and voted on again because they changed a couple of words in reference to crossing a road with a speed limit in excess of 35 mph. Once it is passed the Govenor needs to sign it. Speculation is it will go into affect in August time frame.

    Here we are with the bill

    The house voted and passed the bill. However they changed 2 words in the bill the required the Senate to re-vote on the bill's changes. They approved the changes and Passed the bill! Sen Ron Gould Emailed Me and said it's on it's way to the Gov to sign into LAW! The gov can veto the bill then the AZ LEG can re vote a 2/3 vote to pass it into law, but I don't see why the gov wouldn't just sign it into Law....

    ALMOST THERE!!!!!!

    November 1 here in Oklahoma

    I hear everything has passed and Nov 1 we will be able to tag these trucks here. I can't wait. There is so much more interest here now everyone hears about tagging them. Wish all states would do this.

    Gas Prices

    Maybe with the price of fuel skyrocketing some of these legislatures will get there act together like AZ and OK have.
