An Act to amend 343.055 (1) (c) of the statutes; relating to: commercial driver license waiver for certain operation of commercial motor vehicles by farmers.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
343.055 (1) (c) of the statutes is amended to read:
343.055 (1) (c) Farmers. The operator of the commercial motor vehicle is a farmer or a family member or employee of a farmer who is using the commercial motor vehicle within 150 miles of the operator's farm to transport agricultural products, farm machinery, or farm supplies including transporting hazardous materials requiring placarding, or a combination thereof to or from a farm and the commercial motor vehicle is operated and controlled by a farmer and not used in the operations of a common motor carrier or contract motor carrier, as defined in s. 194.01 (1) and (2). If the operator of the commercial motor vehicle is transporting hazardous materials requiring placarding, the waiver under this paragraph applies only within 150 miles of a farm where the operator is a farmer or a family member or employee of a farmer. In this paragraph, “controlled" means leased or owned; and “farmer" and “leased" have the meanings given in s. 340.01 (18) (b).
