​           NOTICE PURSUANT TO KRS 13A.255 OF ORDINARY ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATION PROPOSING TO INCREASE FEES

603 KAR 4:035

 

Pursuant to KRS 13A.255(2), notice is hereby provided of the following information:

 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has filed the proposed administrative regulation, 603 KAR 4:035 Logo signs. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has promulgated an administrative regulation that increases fees. A summary of the administrative regulation is as follows:

 

(1)  The amount of each fee being established:

Fees have been previously established in this administrative regulation. The proposed amendment to this administrative regulation increases fees that have been previously established.  Fees previously established include:

    • Annual fee of $600 per direction for each logo sign placed for gas, food and lodging.
    • Annual fee of $300 per direction for each logo sign placed for camping and tourist attractions.

      A fee of $100 for the reinstallation or uncovering of the logo sign.

(2)  The amount of any increases to any fees previously established:

Fees previously established are proposed to increase to the following amounts:

    • Annual fee of $600 per direction for each logo sign placed for gas, food and lodging to increase to $1,200 per sign.
    • Annual fee of $300 per direction for each logo sign placed for tourist attractions to increase to $1,200 per sign.
    • Annual fee of $300 per direction for each logo sign placed for camping

attractions to increase to $600 per sign.

    • A fee of $100 for the reinstallation or uncovering of the logo sign to increase to $300 per sign.

(3)  The necessity for the establishment or increase in the fees:

The necessity for the establishment or increase in the fees is due to the fact that the fees have not been adjusted since this administrative regulation became effective. In more than a decade of effectiveness, this administrative regulation has fallen behind in maintaining competitive fees, as exhibited in the attached fees chart demonstrating the fees collected by sister states. Moreover, with the increase in the expenses stemming from property damage and maintenance, the additional fees will assist in reasonable and adequate recovery.

(4)  A person or entity may contact the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for additional information. A contact person is provided at the conclusion of this notice.

 
(5)   The scheduled public hearing for this administrative regulation is on November 22, 2021, at 1:00pm via BlueJeans. The BlueJeans information is provided on the Notice of Public Hearing attached to this administrative regulation. Individuals interested in being heard at this hearing shall notify this agency in writing by five (5) workdays prior to the hearing of their intent to attend. If no notification of intent to attend the hearing is received by that date, the hearing may be canceled. This hearing is open to the public. Any person who wishes to be heard will be given an opportunity to comment on the proposed administrative regulation. A transcript of the public hearing will not be made unless a written request for a transcript is made. Send written notification of intent to be heard at the public hearing on the proposed administrative regulation to the contact person below.

 

(6)     The deadline for submitting written comments on the proposed administrative regulation is 11:59pm on November 30, 2021. Send written comments on the proposed administrative regulation to the contact person below.

Summary of the administrative regulation:

What this administrative regulation does: This administrative regulation adopts the Federal Hazardous Materials Transportation Regulations, 49 C.F.R. (1978), by reference or in its entirety, in order to carry out the intent of KRS 174.400 through 174.425 relating to the transportation of hazardous materials by air or highway. This administrative regulation establishes requirements for motor carriers operating in Kentucky and relates to the safety requirements for motor vehicles and the method of operation. This administrative regulation establishes the requirements related to exemptions from medical examination for private motor carriers of passengers. Modifications to the current regulation eliminate findings that the FMCSA identified as non-compliant with the FMCA regulations.

KRS 174.410(2) requires the Secretary of the Transportation Cabinet, in consultation with the Secretary of the Energy and Environment Cabinet and the Secretary of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, to adopt the Federal Hazardous Materials Transportation Regulations, 49 C.F.R. (1978), in order to effectively carry out the intent of KRS 174.400 through 174.425 relating to the transportation of hazardous materials by air or highway. KRS 174.410(3) requires the Transportation Cabinet and the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet to cooperate with and assist the Energy and Environment Cabinet in the implementation and enforcement of the transportation provisions of any state hazardous waste regulations promulgated pursuant to KRS Chapter 224. KRS 281.600 authorizes the Transportation Cabinet to promulgate administrative regulations relating to safety requirements for motor vehicles and the method of operation, including adoption of any federal motor carrier safety regulations. This administrative regulation establishes requirements for motor carriers operating in Kentucky. This administrative regulation establishes requirements related to exemptions from medical examination for private motor carriers of passengers that are more stringent than the requirements in 49 C.F.R. 391.68(c), which allows these carriers to avoid medical examination. Kentucky does not allow these medical waivers.
