Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
Validation fees for commercial motor vehicles vary by gross weight. It is anticipated that operators of mobile crane support vehicles will save an estimated $1,072.00 (30,000 KG) to $2,346.50 (63,500 KG) annually per support vehicle in validation fees.

It is estimated that the proposal will result in savings to operators of mobile crane support vehicles of approximately $8.7M over five years.

o 2022-23: ($1.4M)
o 2023-24: ($1.8M)
o 2024-25: ($1.8M)
o 2025-26: ($1.8M)
