2018 House Bill 6011: Enroll state in multistate driver license compact

Public Act 621 of 2018

Introduced by Rep. Jeff Noble (R) on May 16, 2018
To enroll Michigan in a national driver license compact that, as described by Ballotpedia, was created to “share driver's license information and traffic violation records with other states for legal purposes” and establishes that “traffic offenses committed by drivers in other states be treated as if they were committed in their home states.” Michigan is reportedly one of five states that do not participate in this. For drivers this would mean that a traffic violation in another state would generate "points" on their Michigan drivers license, and vice versa.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on May 16, 2018
Reported in the House on June 5, 2018
