Hawaii Fails to Pass Pro-Hobby Bills as Legislature Adjourns

The Hawaii legislature failed to pass SAN-supported, pro-hobby legislation in 2022 prior to adjournment of the session. To follow is a brief summary:

  • Legislation (S.B. 667) to require the display of only a single, rear-mounted license plate for all passenger vehicles. The bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee but the Senate Judiciary Committee failed to advance the bill.
  • Legislation (H.B. 1426) to protect enthusiasts from unfair exhaust noise citations by allowing the use, sale, alteration, or installation of car mufflers that meet a 95-decibel noise limit.  The bill passed the Senate but the House Committees on Transportation and Judiciary failed to advance the bill.

Thank you to everyone who voiced support for these efforts.
