Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: Co-Sponsorship Memo - Drive Your Tractor to School
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to amend Title 75 (Vehicles) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statues so that students may drive their truck or truck tractor to school when participating in a annual event observed by a Statewide organization that is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

Current law only allows a truck or truck tractor bearing farm vehicle registration plates to be used exclusively upon a farm or farms owned or operated by the registrant of the vehicle or upon highways between: parts of one such farm, such farms, or such a farm or farms and a place of business for the purpose of buying or selling agricultural commodities or supplies.

My legislation would allow students to drive their truck or truck tractor between the farm and a secondary school during an Annual event such as “Drive Your Tractor to School Day” if the following provisions are satisfied: the operator must be a member of the Statewide organization, the operator has written permission from the school to park the truck or the truck tractor on the grounds of the school of the date of the annual event, and the operator carries the written permission from the school while operating the vehicle between the farm and farms and the school on the date of the annual event.

This legislation is being modeled after SB275 of the 2012 legislative year. Previous co-sponsors includes: Alloway, D. White, Vogel, Greenleaf, Waugh, and Washington.

Introduced as SB53
