SALT LAKE CITY — A local lawmaker’s bill to increase the fines for failing to secure a load, or for littering on a highway, is moving forward for further consideration.
A House committee gave a favorable recommendation Monday to HB 328, sponsored by Rep. Richard Greenwood, R-Roy.
The bill would make the fine for littering at least $100 for the first offense and no less than $250 for a second offense within three years. It would also give a judge the ability to require of the offender at least eight hours of cleanup time along the highways.
The legislation now moves to the House for further consideration.
