Overview: Legislation (H.B. 3053) to eliminate the requirement that roof-mounted off-road light bars be covered when vehicles are operated on roads and highways was approved by West Virginia Senate.  The bill also raises the number of permissible auxiliary passing lamps and auxiliary driving lamps from one to two.  Having already been approved by the House, the bill next moves to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.
