These proposals are no longer open for public comment. The Oregon Transportation Commission will consider these proposed rule changes on the meeting date listed with each rule set.
Annual Re-adoption of IRP, HVUT and IFTA Regulations
The proposed amendment constitutes an adoption of the rules of the International Registration Plan (IRP) to the date of January 1, 2017. Interest is not charged in an audit assessment. The proposed rulemaking removes this requirement and aligns the Department with IRP requirements. Title 26 Code of Federal Regulations Part 41 (HVUT) requires the State to confirm proof of payment of the tax, and require proof of payment by the State as a condition of issuing a registration for a highway motor vehicle. The amendment of OAR 740- 200-0020 adopts HVUT and amendments with the effective date of January 1, 2017, and ensures Oregon remains current with national commercial motor vehicle registration standards. International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) and associated material are applicable to Oregon-based motor carriers who participate in IFTA as a way to report and pay fuel tax to other jurisdictions. The revision to OAR 740-200-0040 adopts the most recent version of IFTA and associated material as the procedures and guidelines for Oregon-based IFTA participants with the effective date of January 1, 2017 to ensure Oregon remains current with the international IFTA standards.
Rules to be amended: 740-200-0010, 740-200-0020, 740-200-0040

Passenger Carriage Deregulation
This rulemaking implements Senate Bill 142 to enable public transportation entities to advance and continue their provision of services. Existing private providers will have opportunity to assist in providing contracted passenger carriage services for public transit providers. This will enable disconnected public transit districts in rural Oregon to link and provide a more connected service.
