A bill to help reduce the number of suspended drivers licenses in Ohio has been voted through the Ohio House of Representatives.

House Bill 336, which passed in the House mid-December 2017, would create a temporary six month fee reduction or waiver program for Ohioans that have had a license suspension for 18 months and have taken care of all other court costs or fines.  Suspensions that involve alcohol, drug abuse, or deadly weapon would not be eligible for the program.

Lawmakers hope that the bill will be able to help those that may not be able to get a job due to their license being suspended.

"This would help reduce the number of suspensions the bureau has to keep track of, it would also provide an incentive for a person to get insurance, get their license reinstated, and be able, if you're not able now to find a job because of lack of transportation, to be able to do that," said Rep. Bob Cupp, 4th District Rep for the State of Ohio.

The bill will go to State Senate for consideration and must be signed by the Governor before the program can start.
