1 New Sections; Re-Registration by Residents Without a Permanent Street Address. Amend RSA 261 by inserting after section 52-a the following new sections:

261:52-b Re-Registration by Residents Temporarily Traveling out of the State. Residents who are without a permanent street address at the time of re-registration because they are traveling outside of the state in recreational vehicles for a prolonged period may renew a vehicle registration by providing written attestations of residency from 2 adult citizens of the municipality, one of whom shall act as the person’s mailing address for purposes of contact by the department. Residency for the purposes of this section shall be defined as intention to return to the municipality after a temporary absence.

261:52-c Re-Registration by Residents Without a Permanent Street Address. Residents who are homeless without a permanent street address at the time of re-registration may register a vehicle by providing certification from the municipal welfare officer that they are currently resident in the town and have permission to use a local social service agency as a mailing address for purposes of contact by the department. Residency for the purposes of this section shall be defined as the expressed intention to continue to reside in the municipality. Nothing in this section shall require the municipality to continue to provide any type of financial support if the individual moves to another location.

2 Registration Forms. The division of motor vehicles of the department of safety shall modify vehicle registration forms to allow for the use of mailing addresses which are not residential addresses in the case of residents re-registering a vehicle under RSA 261:52-b or RSA 261:52-c.

3 Effective Date. This act shall take effect January 1, 2010.
