LANSING, Mich.—A measure to eliminate a requirement that commercial vehicles must display the owner’s name on the cab was sent to Gov. Rick Snyder on Wednesday.
Senate Bill 277, sponsored by Sen. Joe Hune, eliminates a requirement that commercial vehicles weighing more than 5,000 pounds must display the owner’s name on the cab. Wrecker trucks and road service vehicles would still be subject to the mandate.
“This common-sense reform will decrease government bureaucracy while making Michigan even more open to business,” said Hune, R-Hamburg. “I am happy to see that this bill was supported so broadly in both the Senate and House and look forward to a speedy signature by the governor.”
Introduced in March 2013, the measure passed the Michigan Senate 38-0 in October of last year.
The measure was passed Tuesday by the Michigan House of Representatives by a vote of 101-7.
