S498 - Facilitate Response to Disasters. (SL 2019-187)
Session Year 2019
Overview: S.L. 2019-187 helps facilitate and expedite recovery after a natural disaster in two ways:

  • Provides that nonresident businesses and nonresident employees that are requested to come into the State by a critical infrastructure company are not doing business in this State for the disaster-related work performed during the disaster response period; therefore are exempt from registration requirements and various State tax filing and payment requirements.
  • Allows the Secretary of Revenue to issue a temporary license to an importer, exporter, distributor, or transporter of motor fuel in response to a disaster declaration without requiring that person to post a bond or obtain a certificate of authority to operate in this State from the Secretary of State.

This act became effective on August 1, 2019.
