17 OK Stat § 17-180.5 (2015) What's This?

A. The Oklahoma Corporation Commission shall maintain a separate file, listing by commodity group all applications for motor carrier operating authority or transfer thereof, for which proof of public convenience and necessity is required. The list shall name the applicant and the protestant(s), if any, and shall indicate the disposition of each application. Said file shall be maintained on an annual basis and shall be open to public inspection.

B. It shall not be necessary for any motor carrier in intrastate commerce of sand, gravel, rock, crushed stone, asphaltic mix or other similar road building materials when transported in three-axle or less open-top dump trucks, or an intrastate motor carrier of livestock or unprocessed agricultural commodities, to prove public convenience and necessity for the transportation of said commodities, or to give any notice in order to obtain a certificate or permit. The Commission shall issue such certificates or permits to carriers of said commodities in an intrastate commerce without public hearing.

C. In order to insure nondiscriminatory rates for all shippers, the Commission shall establish a collective rate-making procedure for all commodities for which it has heretofore prescribed rates. Said procedure shall assure that respective revenues and costs of carriers engaged in the transportation of the particular commodities for which rates are prescribed are ascertained. Failure on the part of any carrier to comply with this paragraph or the rules and regulations thereof may result in suspension or cancellation of said carrier's operating authority by the Commission.

D. The Corporation Commission is hereby authorized to combine the Common Carrier Rate Division and the Motor Carrier Division. All duties, functions, authority and contractual obligations that relate to these Divisions are hereby transferred to and vested in the combined Division.
