SENATE CONCURRENT
RESOLUTION No. 8



        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the legislative council to assign to a committee for further study the topic of establishing a commercial vehicle court with exclusive jurisdiction over commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and commercial driver's license (CDL) cases.

    Whereas, Court cases involving commercial motor vehicles and commercial driver's licenses are technical and complicated cases that place an undue burden on local trial courts in Indiana; and

    Whereas, The creation of a new commercial vehicle court with exclusive jurisdiction over CMV and CDL cases would reduce local trial court caseloads, assure uniform compliance and enforcement of CMV and CDL laws, enhance Homeland Security programs, and simplify reporting and enforcement programs administered by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives concurring:



    SECTION 1. That the legislative council is urged to assign to a committee for further study the topic of establishing a commercial vehicle court with exclusive jurisdiction over commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and commercial driver's license (CDL) cases.
