Bus Taxation Proration and Reciprocity Agreement

Provides a system whereby bus fleet owners operating in two or more states may prorate their registration fees on the basis of miles operated within a member state to total fleet miles in all states. All U.S. jurisdictions, Cana¬dian provinces, and Mexican states are eligible to par¬ticipate, but specific consent of Congress is required for participation by each new member. Congress approved joinder by the District of Columbia, New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania on April 14, 1965 (P.L. 89 11); joinder by Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont on November 1, 1965 (P.L. 89 32); joinder by Massachusetts on November 2, 1966 (P.L. 89 72); and joinder by Ohio on December 14, 1967 (P.L. 90-200). Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and possibly New York subsequently repealed this agreement.
