2010 Changes to ALRs (License Suspension Hearings)

About a year ago, I wrote about new rules for ALR (License Suspension).  That post gave you "Everything You need to Know about the New ALR Rules".  Then, we saw New ALR (Transportation Code) Changes come down the pipes. Well, it looks like 2010 is bringing some change too.

Here’s the problem.  The SOAH rules of ’09 say you need to use the Texas Comptroller Website to calculate mileage.  But according to that website:

As a result of House Bill 605, 81st Legislature, Regular Session, the Comptroller’s office no longer publishes the Texas Mileage Guide.

Uh, Oh. . . .

Well, it seems that Automobile Mileage is now 50 cents per mile (as of Jan. 1, 2010) according to the new website.  However, there  is no calculation tool to use.  So I guess we need to go with google maps, or another website to find the mileage.

That’s all I know for now, I will report back later as any developments come forward.  I think I am the first one to discover this??
