House Committee on Government Organization Has a Brief Consideration of Two Bills

 The House Committee on Government Organization convened at 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11 in 215-E to consider two bills. The committee advanced both House Bill 2881 and House Bill 2716.

House Bill 2881 is very similar to a piece of legislation that re-registered and changed the color scheme for state registration plates. The purpose of this bill is to provide for a change of the color scheme for county and municipal vehicle registration plates. House Bill 2881 would require all municipalities to obtain a new title certificate, registration certificate, and registration plate for all vehicles prior to January 1, 2020 and will require renewal every two years.

House Bill 2881 was approved unanimously by the Committee, and was advanced to the House Committee on Finance for a second reference.

House Bill 2716 was also considered by the committee, a bill to update motorboat equipment requirements in the state of West Virginia.

The bill, which mirrors federal code regarding motorboats, establishes in code what lighting requirements and boat class regulations are pertinent in West Virginia waters.

The bill was passed unanimously, and was advanced to the House Floor with the recommendation that it pass.
