Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — State Representative Woody Burton (R-Whiteland) authored legislation regarding vehicle registration, which passed the Indiana House of Representatives on Tuesday with a 91 to 5 vote. The bill is coauthored by State Representative Eric Koch (R-Bedford).

“I have spoken with many constituents who were unaware that they were violating the law by not signing their vehicle registration,” said Rep. Burton. “We worked with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles on this piece of legislation to remove this unnecessary penalty on Hoosier drivers.”

House Bill (HB) 1082 removes the requirement that the person whose name appears on the vehicle registration must sign it. As the result of the bill, individuals who fail to sign their vehicle registration will no longer be subject to a Class C infraction.

“The signature is unnecessary, and the signature line is on the back of the form,” said Rep. Koch. “This is a common sense change to Indiana law, which currently penalizes drivers for committing an infraction they don’t know exists.”

HB 1082 will be sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Tom Wyss (R-Fort Wayne) and Sen. Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) for further discussion and debate. To stay up-to-date on this bill and any other piece of legislation in the General Assembly, visit www.in.gov/legislative.
