Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that the Department of Transportation and local authorities, with respect to highways under their respective jurisdictions, in their discretion and upon application in writing may issue a special permit authorizing the applicant to move loads of agricultural commodities on a 2-axle single vehicle registered by the Secretary of State with the axle loads not to exceed 45%, on a 3-axle or 4-axle vehicle registered by the Secretary of State not to exceed 30%, and on a 5-axle vehicle registered by the Secretary of State not to exceed 20% above the allowed gross weights. Provides that the fee for such permit shall be $500 to be distributed into the State Construction Account Fund. Effective July 1, 2019.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill, and makes the following changes: (1) provides that the Department and local authorities may issue a special permit authorizing the applicant to move loads of agricultural commodities if: (i) the vehicle's axle weight and gross weight do not exceed 10% above the maximum limits allowed; and (ii) the vehicle's gross weight does not exceed the vehicles registered gross weight by 10% (rather than on a 2-axle single vehicle registered by the Secretary of State with the axle loads not to exceed 45%, on a 3-axle or 4-axle vehicle registered by the Secretary of State not to exceed 30%, and on a 5-axle vehicle registered by the Secretary of State not to exceed 20% above the gross weights allowed); (2) provides that all other restrictions to permits apply; (3) provides that permits issued under the new provisions are valid only on federal and State highways under the jurisdiction of the Department other than interstate highways; (4) provides that a local authority may waive special permit requirements for highways under its jurisdiction for any vehicle issued a permit under the new provisions; and (5) provides that a combination of permits shall not exceed a total fee of $1,000. Effective July 1, 2019.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation would potentially receive additional revenue for the State Construction Account Fund from the issuance of overweight permits for agricultural commodities. Since the bill is not clear on the length of term for the permit, we assumed it was a one-time permit fee of $500. Additionally, since this is not something that we have permitted in the past we have no definite way to estimate the number of permits that might be requested. However, last year was the first year that we had Emergency Harvest Permits and we issued 1,800 of those. If we assume that number as the basis for this new overweight permit, at $500 each, this would bring in and additional $900,000 for the State Construction Account Fund. The damage to the highway system from the overweight loads of agricultural commodities would exceed the revenue generated by the new permit.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds reference to:
625 ILCS 5/15-312from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 15-312

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Provides that a special permit issued by the Department of Transportation (rather than upon declaration by the Governor that an emergency harvest situation exists) shall be required from September 1 through December 31 for a vehicle that exceeds the maximum axle weight and gross weight limits or exceeds the vehicle's registered gross weight, provided that the vehicle's axle weight and gross weight do not exceed 10% above the maximum limits under the Code and does not exceed the vehicle's registered gross weight by 10%. Makes conforming changes. Provides that an applicant for a State Police escort shall pay $75 (rather than $60) per hour, per State Police vehicle.
