Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Defines "gross combination weight rating" (GCWR). Provides that the GCWR of the power unit will not be used to define a commercial motor vehicle when the power unit is not towing another vehicle. Makes conforming changes regarding the definition of GCWR. Provides for the collection of a $10 surcharge for vehicles in the 12,000 lbs. and less flat weight plate category to identify those vehicles as covered farm vehicles. Makes it a serious traffic violation to drive a commercial motor vehicle on a highway with a commercial driver instruction permit, but unaccompanied by the holder of a valid commercial driver's license. Exempts persons operating a covered farm vehicle, as defined under the Illinois Vehicle Code, from requirement to have a commercial driver's license or requirement to submit a medical examiner's certificate for operation of a commercial motor vehicle in non-excepted interstate commerce. Effective July 1, 2015.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
In a Section concerning mileage weight tax options, provides for the collection of a $10 surcharge for vehicles in the 12,000 lbs. and less mileage (rather than flat) weight plate category to identify those vehicles as covered farm vehicles. Makes conforming changes.
