The Department of Motor Vehicles will hold public workshops and hearings at the following locations on the date and time specified:



Date: May 23, 2006 Immediately following the workshop
Time: 10:00 AM
Location: Health & Human Services Dept.
Kinkead Building 1st floor
  505 East King Street
  Carson City, NV 89701    


Video conferencing will be provided to Las Vegas at 3811 West Charleston, Room 209 Health and Human Services Dept.

The purpose of the hearing is to receive comments from all interested persons regarding the amendment of regulations that pertain to chapter 706 of the Nevada Administrative Code.

The following information is provided pursuant to the requirements of NRS 233B.0603:

The proposed amendment will clarify the required evidence of insurance for intrastate common and contract motor carriers and adjusts the limits of liability for common, contract, and private motor carriers of property based on the gross vehicle weight rating of the vehicles operated.

There is no economic effect of the regulation on the public; the economic effect on the businesses regulated would be adjustments to the premiums on their insurance and cannot be estimated. Immediate adverse and beneficial effects to the businesses regulated are a possible increase in the premium if the limits must be raised for vehicles operating with a gross vehicle weight rating in excess of 26,000 pounds and a decrease in the premium if the limits are lowered for vehicles operating with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,000 pounds or less. There are no long-term effects of the proposed regulations.

There is no cost to the agency for enforcement of the proposed regulations.

The proposed amendments to the regulations do not overlap that of any other state, local, or federal governmental agency, but are similar to regulations of the Department of Business & industry, Transportation Services Authority and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on motor carriers of passengers and interstate motor carriers, respectively. These regulations are not required pursuant to federal law.

Persons wishing to comment upon the proposed action of the Department of Motor Vehicles may appear at the scheduled public workshop and hearing or may address their comments in written form to:

Mary Alotta 
Department of Motor Vehicles
Research and Development Division
555 Wright Way
Carson City, NV 89711 

Written submission must be received by the Department of Motor Vehicles on or before May 25, 2006.

If no person who is directly affected by the proposed action appears to request time to make an oral presentation, the Department of Motor Vehicles may proceed immediately to act upon any written submissions. 

A copy of this notice and the regulation to be amended will be on file at the State Library, 100 Stewart Street, Carson City, Nevada, for inspection by members of the public during business hours. Additional copies of the notice and regulations to be amended will be available at each of the Department of Motor Vehicles listed, and at the main public libraries listed, for inspection and coping by members of the public during business hours. Copies of this notice and the proposed regulation will also be mailed to members of the public upon request. A reasonable fee may be charged for copies if it is deemed necessary.

Upon adoption of any regulation, the agency, if requested to do so by an interested person, either before adoption or within 30 days thereafter will issue a concise statement of the principal reasons for and against its adoption and incorporate therein its reason for overruling the consideration urged against its adoption.

This notice of hearing has been posted at the locations listed on the attached page.

Dated: March 29, 2006.
