New Utah Laws Effective January 1, 2010

statecapitol.jpegSeveral Utah laws go into effect the first day of 2010, including:

This bill amends the Uniform Driver License Act. It repeals the Drivers' License Division's Renewal-by-Mail program and requires any driver obtaining or renewing a driver's license to do so in person at a DMV office. The repeal of this rule was also recently announced in the Utah State Bulletin.

This bill modifies the Property Tax Act by changing the procedures taxing entities must follow when advertising public hearings in newspapers and with county auditors.

This bill amends the Motor Vehicle Act by modifying the definition of a custom vehicle and declaring it exempt from vehicle emissions inspections. This bill also defines a street rod as a vintage vehicle.
