CDL Bill | VideoJennifer Joas | 1/23/2013
One of the bill`s stipulations would require drivers to have a CDL permit for 14 days before getting their license. Legislators say that`s important to keep operations running smoothly in the state.
"With the increases traffic through the department of transportation and these testing offices, if you show up and you deal with these things, they can schedule it out in advance. And I think it`s a mechanism to get more drivers tested appropriately and not have so many no shows for scheduling and things of that nature," said Dickinson Senator Kelly Armstrong (R).
The bill passed its second reading in the Senate with all "yes" votes.
