on Motor Vehicle and Traffic Regulation by a vote of 12 to 0.

This bill requires that any motor vehicle, assembled by a 2 or 4
year institution of higher education, exclusively utilizing
"solar power" and built to compete in a national competition
organized to foster interest in solar energy, be registered and
titled by the Director of Revenue.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

PROPONENTS:  Supporters say that institutions of higher
education have built solar power vehicles for competition and
have found it difficult to license the vehicles to operate on
the highway because such vehicles are not equipped with the
required safety equipment.

Testifying for the bill were Representative McBride; and
University of Missouri.

OPPONENTS:  No opposition was voiced to the committee.
