2009 House Bill 4726: Ban drivers license renewal if three unpaid parking tickets
  1. Introduced by Rep. Roy Schmidt (D) on March 31, 2009, to reduce from six to three the number of unpaid parking tickets a person can have before the Secretary of State will not renew a driver license. In addition to the tickets a person would have to pay a $45 "clearance fee".
    • Referred to the House Transportation Committee on March 31, 2009.
      • Reported in the House on October 8, 2009, without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
  2. Passed 68 to 37 in the House on October 15, 2009.
    Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No"

  3. Received in the Senate on October 20, 2009.
    • Referred to the Senate Transportation Committee on October 20, 2009.

      • Reported in the Senate on June 8, 2010, with the recommendation that the substitute (S-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
    • Substitute offered in the Senate on June 24, 2010, to replace the previous version of the bill with one that also amends the current law to require a court to notify a person of possible license renewall denial after six parking tickets (or after three if the bill becomes law), rather than just allow the the court to do so. The substitute passed by voice vote in the Senate on June 24, 2010.
  4. Failed 14 to 23 in the Senate on June 30, 2010, to reduce from six to three the number of unpaid parking tickets a person can have before the Secretary of State will not renew a driver license. In addition to the tickets a person would have to pay a $45 "clearance fee".
    Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No"

  5. Moved to reconsider by Sen. Alan L. Cropsey (R) on June 30, 2010, the vote by which the bill was defeated. Passed by voice vote in the Senate on June 30, 2010.
