Official Summary

The bill specifies that sellers of electricity as fuel for alternative fuel vehicles are not regulated as public utilities. Generating electricity for sale as fuel for alternative fuel vehicles also does not make the seller subject to regulation as a public utility if the seller generates the electricity on the property where the fueling facilities are located and the electricity is generated from a renewable resource.

Public utilities must make commercially reasonable efforts to provide connection of electric and natural gas service to alternative fuel vehicle charging facilities. A public utility's right to make unregulated operating expenditures and investments via an unregulated subsidiary with regard to alternative fuel vehicle charging facilities is not limited.

Official Summary

Legislative Audit Committee. The bill implements the recommendations of the legislative audit committee regarding the department of revenue's audits of facilities that conduct automobile emission inspections. Specifically, federal environmental protection agency rules require such inspections at least twice per year while current state law generally requires them every 90 days; the bill conforms state law with federal law. Current law requires the department to conduct performance audits on each test lane at enhanced inspection centers and equipment audits on each lane at all types of inspection centers; the bill requires such audits to be conducted at least twice per year on each lane at the facilities. Finally, the bill authorizes the department to conduct risk-based audits for stations and facilities employing inspectors or mechanics suspected of violating rules.
