An order affecting ch. Trans 302, relating to vehicle marking and affecting small businesses. Effective 5-1-05
Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
Small motor carrier businesses based in Wisconsin will benefit from the repeal of ch. Trans 302 through the elimination of inconsistencies related to vehicle marking. The small businesses that provide intrastate motor carrier services will have only one source of regulations, thus making their efforts to comply easier. Small businesses that provide both intrastate and interstate motor carrier services will be able to simultaneously comply with both Wisconsin and federal regulations thus making their efforts easier.

Transportation
(CR 04-117)
An order affecting ch. Trans 112, relating to medical standards for driver licensing and general standards for school bus endorsements. Effective 5-1-05
Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
This rule making will prohibit some skillful drivers from obtaining a school bus endorsement, and employment as a school bus driver. To the extent that this rule reduces the pool of school bus drivers, DOT expects that the cost of employing school bus drivers will rise. DOT has no factual data to determine how many bus drivers will be made ineligible by this rule. In its fiscal estimate for 2003 Senate Bill 350 prepared in January 2004, DOT stated that it issues approximately 2,000 school bus driver endorsements each year, and projected 2,000 background checks per year. DOT has no information regarding how many applicants have resided in other states within the previous two years, or of how many school districts and school bus companies might already be employing criminal background checks as part of their ordinary employment practices.
