State Representative Dave Greenspan (R-Westlake) today announced that the House Insurance Committee unanimously approved House Bill 336, legislation he joint sponsored with Rep. John Barnes (D-Cleveland) that addresses driver’s license reinstatement fees.

The bill would require the Registrar of Motor Vehicles to establish a temporary six-month driver’s license reinstatement fee debt reduction and waiver program for individuals who had their licenses suspended for a variety of specified offenses.

The program would set up certain eligibility requirements to receive a fee reduction or waiver, including the following: that at least 18 months have passed since the suspension was imposed, the offender is indigent, and the offense that led to the license suspension did not involve alcohol, drugs, or a deadly weapon.

The Reinstatement Fee Amnesty Initiative seeks to help Ohioans who may not have the extra funds to pay the fee and are trying to get back on their feet. Many with suspended licenses continue to drive anyway, and the bill would incentivize individuals to legally reinstate their license and keep their insurance coverage.

House Bill 336 now awaits consideration for a vote by the full House.
