Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That Chapter 165 of the Revised Code of Delaware, 1935, as amended, be further amended by striking out paragraph designated (1) of 5564. Section 26 thereof, as the same last appears in Chapter 123, Volume 47, Laws of Delaware, 1947, and by substituting and enacting in lieu thereof, a new paragraph (1) as follows:

(1) Such vehicles as are authorized to operate or to be moved as provided by Section 119 of this chapter shall be registered in the same manner as other vehicles. The fee for such registration shall be at the same rate required for trucks and semi-trailers. Whenever a special permit is issued as provided by Section 119 of Chapter 165, the fee for issuing the same shall be Two Dollars, and in addition thereto, the sum of two cents per ton mile on the tonnage by which the total load, including the vehicle, exceeds the gross weight for which it is registered, except, however, that the fee for a blanket permit as set forth in Section 119 of Chapter 165 shall be Ten Dollars. Unused permits may be returned with a written certification that they were not used and certain fees levied for the permit may be refunded.

Approved June 30, 1949.
