BILL NUMBER: AB 299 INTRODUCED BILL TEXT INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Ducheny FEBRUARY 14, 1997 An act to repeal Sections 2937 and 2938 of the Vehicle Code, relating to vehicles, and declaring the urgency thereof, to take effect immediately. LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST AB 299, as introduced, Ducheny. Motorcycles: safety program: fees. Under existing law, the Department of Motor Vehicles is required, until December 31, 1997, to collect an additional $2 initial and renewal registration fee for every motorcycle subject to registration, which fees are used for a motorcycle safety program. Those provisions are to be repealed on January 1, 1998. This bill would delete that repeal date, thereby continuing indefinitely the collection of the additional $2 fees and the motorcycle safety program. The bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute. Vote: 2/3. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: no. THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. Section 2937 of the Vehicle Code is repealed. 2937.

However, the commissioner may continue to execute contracts and grants pursuant to Section 2932 with the remaining moneys in the fund. SEC. 2. Section 2938 of the Vehicle Code is repealed. 2938. This article shall remain in effect only until January 1, 1998, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, which is enacted before January 1, 1998, deletes or extends that date. SEC. 3. This act is an urgency statute necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety within the meaning of Article IV of the Constitution and shall go into immediate effect.
