SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
SENATE, No. 2229
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: DECEMBER 1, 1997
The Senate Transportation Committee favorably reports Senate Bill No. 2229.
This bill amends R.S.48:16-13 to revise the definition of autocab in the autocab article in Title 48. The bill would redefine autocab as any automobile or motor car which is issued special registration plates bearing the word "livery" pursuant to section 12 of P.L.1979, c.224 (C.39:3-19.5) and is engaged in the business of carrying passengers for hire, which is held out, announced or advertised to operate or run or which is operated or run over any of the streets or public highways of this State and which is hired by charter or for a particular contract or by the day or hour or other fixed period, on a prearranged basis for proms, weddings, funerals, or to transport passengers to and from airports, other passenger stations or motels and hotels, and which a price is agreed upon in advance.
This bill is the same as A2219, reported by the committee on the same date.
