House Bill 172 (HB 172) requires the Taxation and Revenue Department to create and maintain an emergency contact database for access by law enforcement officers.
House Bill 172 (HB 172) requires the Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) to create and maintain an emergency contact database. TRD must ask individuals if they would like to voluntarily provide emergency contact information in the event a person is in an accident or has a medical emergency and is unable to communicate with law enforcement. Individuals will have the opportunity to list the info in the database when conducting business at a motor vehicle department.
Access to emergency contacts:
• TRD in order to add, update, or remove the contact information, and
• Law enforcement in the event of an emergency situation.
HB 172 does not contain an appropriation nor effective date.
