VEH CD-PORTABLE SCALE-TRAINING                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Vehicle  Code  to  require  officers   and      
   technicians  who  operate  portable  scales  to  complete  a  training      
   program.  Provides that an owner or operator of a vehicle that exceeds      
   the  weight  provisions of the Code by 2,000 pounds or less if weighed      
   on wheel load weighers must remove the excess.   Amends  the  Illinois      
   Police  Training  Act  to  require  that  the Illinois Law Enforcement      
   Training Standards Board establish a training program for operators of      
   portable scales.  Effective immediately.                                    
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of State Police)                                  
          HB458 would create an additional cost of $85,000 per year.           
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Transportation)                                
          There will be little impact on revenues as tickets are rarely        
          written for excess weight of less than 2,000 pounds.                 
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          HB 458 creates a personnel mandate requiring a 100% reimburse-       
          ment by the State.                                                   
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code.  Provides that the training          
   program requirements in the introduced bill apply only to municipal         
   and county officers, technicians, and employees. Provides for tests         
   of scales at the request of the State Police.
