Public Utilities Commission Administrative Fee Setting Transportation Services

Concerning fees paid to the public utilities commission by operators of transportation services in the state, and, in connection therewith, requiring the public utilities commission to establish fees administratively.
2023 Regular Session
Transportation & Motor Vehicles
Bill Summary

Current law requires that, if the uncommitted reserves in the motor carrier fund (fund) exceed 10% of the fund's expenditures, the amount of the uncommitted reserves in the fund that are attributable to the registration fees paid by motor carriers and other transportation providers required to register with the United States department of transportation under the unified carrier registration system must be transferred from the fund to the motor carrier safety fund. Section 1 of the bill adjusts the amount of uncommitted reserves that triggers the transfer from 10% to 16.5%.

Under current law, various fees imposed on motor carriers are either specified in statute or set administratively by the public utilities commission (commission). Sections 2 and 3 1 and 2 remove the statutorily set fees and instead authorize the commission to set the motor carrier fees administratively.Section 4 3 requires, on and after January 1, 2024, that the commission establish transportation network company permit fees administratively. The commission is required to notify transportation network companies of an increase in the fees at least 30 days before the increased fees take effect. The commission may adopt rules establishing different tiers of permit fees for distinct types of transportation network companies based on the commission's consideration of market factors.
