Delegate tries to amend municipal traffic control bill


The Dominion Post

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Delegate Rodney Pyles, D-Monongalia, stirred some debate on the House floor March 30 with an attempt to amend his municipal traffic control bill into a Senate traffic bill.

The bill Pyles attempted to amend is SB 164. It increases the length of load limits on line trucks.

His dead bill is HB 2357. It aimed to give municipalities authority to regulate truck and commercial traffic on state roads within their borders “when there is a least one reasonable alternate route available to avoid traveling within their borders.”

Pyles wanted to amend his bill onto SB 164.

The amendment failed in a voice vote, with the Democrats joining Pyles and the Republicans opposing it. SB 164 is up for third reading and passage today.
