Read the first time April 14, 1993.
To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3996), to amend Section 56-3-375, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to the registration of motor vehicles, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass with amendment:
Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking all after the enacting words and inserting:
/SECTION 1. The 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 56-3-370. A person is not required to maintain registration and licensing for a vehicle that is not operated, is in storage, or is inoperable. A person subsequently may register and license this vehicle upon payment of the license fee required by this chapter upon proof the motor vehicle is insured and if the previous registration and licensing of the vehicle has not violated Sections 56-10-240 and 56-10-245."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor./
Amend title to conform.
OLIN R. PHILLIPS, for Committee.
This Bill adds Section 56-3-370, relating to the registration of motor vehicles so as to provide for reregistration of a vehicle that was inoperable or in storage.
This Bill would have no effect on state or local revenue.
Section 56-3-375, imposing a five dollar penalty fee, was repealed by Act Number 165 of 1993. Therefore, no penalty revenue will be foregone because of this legislation.
