URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Bill to Exempt Certain Historic Military Vehicles From License Plate Requirement Approved by House; Moves to Governor
Legislation (S.B. 463) to exempt historic military vehicles from the requirement that they display a license plate unless the vehicle was originally manufactured with lighting and mounting provisions for a plate was approved by the full House of Representatives. The bill will now be sent to Governor Rick Snyder for his signature and enactment into law. Under the bill, if the plate is not attached to the exterior of the historic military vehicle, it must be present in the vehicle and available upon demand by law enforcement officers.
We Urge You to Contact Governor Rick Snyder (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 463
- In Michigan, "historic military vehicle" means a vehicle, including a trailer, regardless of the vehicle's size, weight, or year of manufacture, that was manufactured for use in any country's military forces and is maintained to represent its military design and markings accurately.
- S.B. 463 would protect the aesthetic contours of historic military vehicles and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact Governor Rick Snyder immediately by phone or e-mail to request his support for S.B. 463.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
