HB 1424 -- SALE OF SURPLUS STATE HIGHWAY PATROL PROPERTY
COMMITTEE ACTION: Voted "do pass by consent" by the Committee on
Crime Prevention and Public Safety by a vote of 12 to 0.
Currently, the State Highway Patrol is authorized to sell surplus
patrol motor vehicles. This bill allows the patrol to also sell
surplus watercraft, watercraft motors, and trailers.
The Highway Patrol's Motor Vehicle and Aircraft Revolving Fund is
renamed the Highway Patrol's Motor Vehicle, Aircraft, and
Watercraft Revolving Fund and allows it to be used to purchase
watercraft, watercraft motors, and trailers as well as vehicles.
FISCAL NOTE: No impact on state funds in FY 2013, FY 2014, and
PROPONENTS: Supporters say that the bill is needed now that the
State Water Patrol is a division of the State Highway Patrol.
The bill allows the highway patrol to sell surplus equipment that
the water patrol used to have the authority to sell. The bill
also allows the highway patrol to use the funds from the sales.
Testifying for the bill were Representative Marshall; and State
OPPONENTS: There was no opposition voiced to the committee.
