Bill would extend driver’s license renewals

Driver’s license renewals would be once every six years under a measure advanced Tuesday by the Louisiana House on Tuesday.

House Bill 1252 would extend the current four year requirement.

The House voted 96-0 for the change.

“Other states do it,” said HB1252 sponsor state Rep.Franklin Foil , R-Baton Rouge. “State police brought this to my attention. It will ease the line and time people have to spend in the Office of Motor Vehicles”

Foil said Texas has a six year renewal.

The bill now heads to the state Senate.
