HB-1061, created by Colorado Motor Carriers Association and sponsored by Reps. J Becker & Melton and Senators Scott & Todd requests a change to the definition of commercial vehicles. It requests to define commercial vehicles at a weight of 16,000 pounds rather than at 10,000 pounds due to the state mandates. Why? In a nutshell: 

  • Ports of Entry requires vehicles 16,000 pounds or greater to pull in their ports.
  • Patrol and POE mobile units can now stop 10,000 pound vehicles at roadside operations for safety inspections.
  • The bill brings uniformity to the weights as they both now will be 16,000 pounds.
