An Act To Increase Weight Allowances for Farm Trucks

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 29-A MRSA §505, sub-§2-A, ¶W,  as enacted by PL 2001, c. 671, §8, is amended to read:

W.  For gross weight from 65,001 to 69,000 100,000 pounds, the fee is $469.

Sec. 2. 29-A MRSA §505, sub-§3,  as amended by PL 1999, c. 472, §2, is further amended to read:

3. Maximum weight.   The maximum registered weight of a farm truck is 69,000 100,000 pounds, including product. The fine for exceeding the registered gross weight of a farm truck is the difference between the fee for a farm truck and a commercially registered truck or truck tractor within the category of the actual weight at the time of the violation.


This bill raises the maximum allowable weight for farm trucks to 100,000 pounds.
