of other states to allow the cooperative registration of motor carriers transporting property or

other states to issue interstate registration stamps and trip permits; accept the filing of insurance
certificates, insurance cancellation notices, and orders of the former Interstate Commerce
Commission or a successor agency; issue suspension and reinstatement orders or notices; and

of financial responsibility with the commissioner for its interstate operations in this state.
