Name: Motor Vehicle Laws Commission - RG 615


Historical Note: The Motor Vehicle Laws Commission was created in 1951 and was made up of five members of the Senate and five members of the House. Its duties included making a thorough study of existing laws relating to the operation of motor vehicles and the transportation of persons and property by motor vehicles, the administration and enforcement of such laws, the relationship between such laws and the laws of other states, the adequacy of existing legislation to meet the needs of the public and the motor vehicle industry, the construction and condition of highways in the state, and the effects of such highways and highway traffic on the operations of vehicles (L. 1951, p. 362). In 1973 it further was charged with investigating the feasibility of recycling junked vehicles into productive raw materials and the marketing of the same (P.A. 78-4, pp. 21-22). The commission was abolished by the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984 (P.A. 83-1257, p. 1175).
