A new state law creates a third weight class for registered farm vehicles to ensure that Kentucky farmers are not improperly ticketed and taxed when operating their farm vehicles in other states.
The new law took effect on March 16, when Gov. Steve Beshear signed Senate Bill 79, sponsored by Sens. Joey Pendleton, Dennis Parrett and Mike Wilson.
At issue is the International Fuel Tax Agreement, which applies to vehicles of certain designs and characteristics, including a gross vehicle weight or registered weight “exceeding 26,000 pounds.”
