Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that the Code Chapter governing size, weight, and load of vehicles does not apply to fire apparatus or authorized emergency vehicles owned or operated by any governmental body or not-for-profit fire protection service organization or agency. Removes a provision providing that an emergency vehicle may not exceed 86,000 pounds gross weight or other listed weights.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that except for weight limits on Class I highways under a Chapter in the Code governing size, weight, load, and permits, the provisions under that Chapter governing size, weight, and load (rather than size and load) do not apply to fire apparatus or emergency vehicles (rather than only fire apparatus). Provides weight limits for a fire apparatus designed to be used in emergency conditions to transport personnel and equipment, and used to support the suppression of fires and mitigation of other hazardous situations, on a Class I highway.
