On May 4, 2012, Sen. Bill Cadman introduced SB 12-184 – Concerning the Registration of Special Mobile Machinery Fleets, and, In Connection Therewith, Making an Appropriation. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.
The bill allows an owner of more than 10 pieces of special mobile machinery to register all new special mobile machinery quarterly with the county and to obtain and use special mobile machinery plates, stickers, or certificates to designate that the registration for the machinery is pending. This allows the owner to renew the registrations for all of the machinery on the same date each year. If the machinery is not intended for highway use, its plate is not required to have an annual validating tab or sticker. Fees are set to implement the bill.
The bill is assigned to the Transportation Committee and is scheduled for committee review today at a time and place to be determined.
Since this summary, the bill passed out of the Senate, and was assigned to the House Finance Committee. It was unamended in Finance and referred to Appropriations, then referred unamended to the House Committee of the Whole.
