SB 474 – Relating to Recreational Off-highway Vehicles
On Thursday, December 2, SB 474 by Senator Keith Perry (R-Gainesville) was heard by the Senate Agriculture Committee and passed unanimously. AIF’s Vice President of Governmental Relations, Adam Basford, stood in support of this legislation.
This bill increases the dry weight allowed for recreational off-highway vehicles (ROV) from 2,500lbs to 3,500lbs. This increase is necessary to allow for the development of electric powered ROVs because the battery components often weigh significantly more than internal combustion vehicles.
SB 474 will now go to the Senate Transportation Committee.
AIF supports legislation that encourages revisions to outdated regulations that bolster the business climate and drive competition for new and better products for Florida’s businesses and consumers.
