The California Assembly Transportation Committee, for a second time, unanimously approved legislation that would extend to 45 feet the length of motorhomes allowed on the state’s major highways.

Motorhomes are now limited to 40 feet, under a nine-year-old law that California officials began to enforce last summer. An earlier version of legislation containing the length extension became bogged down in the state Appropriations Committee and died at the end of January.

The proposal includes a provision that would require drivers of RVs longer than 45 feet to obtain a special endorsement for their driver’s license.
