Bill description: HB 566 would raise the weight limit on personal delivery devices.

Rating: +1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market? 

A personal delivery device is “an electrically powered device that is operated on sidewalks and crosswalks and is intended primarily to transport property” (for example, the FedEx SameDay Delivery Bot).

Currently, these devices can legally operate on sidewalks and crosswalks (following all traffic laws) if, without their cargo, they weigh 80 pounds or less. This bill would increase the weight limit to 200 pounds or less. This allows a broader range of personal delivery devices to be used in Idaho.
