Relating to height limitations for certain vehicles transporting
seed cotton or cotton.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Under current law, the maximum height of a vehicle and its load can be no higher than 14 feet. However, there are exceptions, including single motor vehicles transporting certain agricultural products or processing equipment, which may operate up to 14 feet 6 inches.
SB 688 would add to this exception a truck-tractor operated in combination with a semitrailer that is used to transport seed cotton or cotton.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 688 because it does not promote or offend our liberty principles.
