Lawmakers gave first-round approval Feb. 13 to a bill that would change a record retention law for transporter plates.
Currently, an applicant for a transporter plate must keep records associated with the transport of a motor vehicle or trailer for six years. LB699, introduced by Brainard Sen. Bruce Bostelman, would decrease this time period to three years.
Bostelman said the original law was written to mirror the six-year retention requirement of the state Department of Motor Vehicles. That requirement has since changed, he said.
“This is a simple bill that harmonizes requirements for record keeping between the DMV, county treasurers and owners of transporter plates,” Bostelman said.
The bill advanced to select file on a 38-0 vote.
