STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen

 

AN ACT relative to aircraft registration fees.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

287:1  New Section; Reporting by Airport.  Amend RSA 422 by inserting after section 20 the following new section:

422:20-a  Reporting by Airport.  The owner of each airport open for public use shall submit to the department quarterly a list of all aircraft, including the federal registration number for each aircraft, that are based at that airport.

287:2  Repeal.  The following are repealed:

I.  RSA 422:31, I-II, relative to aircraft registration fees.

II.  RSA 422:32, III, relative to operating fees for operation of antique aircraft.

287:3  Aircraft Operating Fee.  RSA 422:31, III is repealed and reenacted to read as follows:

III.  An aircraft operating fee for each aircraft for which a state registration certificate is required.  The amount of the fee for an antique aircraft, glider, or experimental aircraft shall be $100.  The amount of the fee for all other aircraft shall be based on the maximum certificated gross weight of the aircraft, as follows:

0-3,000 lbs. $100

3,001-8,000 lbs. $250

8,001-12,500 lbs. $2,500

more than 12,500 lbs. $3,500

287:4  New Section; Reporting by Commissioner.  Amend RSA 422 by inserting after section 31 the following new section:

422:31-a  Reporting by Commissioner.  On or before September 15 of each year, the commissioner shall certify in a report to the governor and the chairpersons of the house and senate standing committees on ways and means the following information:  for the fiscal year just ended, the numbers of aircraft registered in each of the weight classes listed in RSA 422:31, III; operating fee revenues received by weight class; the numbers of aircraft by weight class that were based during the fiscal year at each of the airports open for public use; and a summary report showing the total numbers of such registered aircraft by weight class by year beginning with the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017.

287:5  Operating Fee Revenues.  Amend RSA 422:36, II to read as follows:

II.  Disbursements of revenue from the aircraft operating fee shall be made by the department after collection of such fees provided that [1/4] $250,000 of aircraft operating fee revenues originating at a publicly or privately owned airport shall be available each fiscal year for public use and shall, upon application, be paid over to the aeronautical fund established for that airport and shall be used for aeronautical purposes.

287:6  Applicability.

I.  While recognizing that the revision in aircraft registration fees in this act may positively or negatively impact revenues, it is the legislative intent that the operating budget of the bureau of aeronautics shall not be based upon anticipated general fund revenue collected under RSA 422.  Any resulting revenue impacts resulting from changes herein shall not negatively impact funding for the operation of the bureau of aeronautics.

II.  Effective July 1, 2018, the operating fee for an aircraft not previously registered in this state or an aircraft due for registration renewal after September 1, 2018 shall be the fee in RSA 422:31, III, as amended by section 3 of this act and there shall be no state registration fee for such aircraft.

287:7  Effective Date.

I.  Sections 1-5 of this act shall take effect January 1, 2019.

II.  The remainder of this act shall take effect July 1, 2018.

 

Approved: June 21, 2018

Effective Date:

I. Sections 1-5 shall take effect January 1, 2019.

II. Remainder shall take effect July 1, 2018.
