Explanation: 

HCS#2 HB 626, introduced by Representative Becky Ruth (Republican - District 114) provides large rental and lease companies the option to register their vehicles in bulk.  While there was discussion during debate that the bill is extremely limiting (as written only one company would currently qualify), there is nothing discriminatory in how it is worded -- any company with the required number of vehicles would be able to use the provisions in this bill should they grow to that size.  While this in not ideal (I would have preferred a much lower minimum), it is still a small improvement on current law.
