Illinois Bill to Expand Antique Vehicle Usage Signed into Law

Success in Illinois! Governor JB Pritzker signed into law SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 2548) to allow “Antique Expanded Use” vehicles to be driven without limitation for two additional months. Expanded-use antique vehicles are defined as being more than 25 years old or a “bona fide replica” and were previously limited to traveling to and from auto shows, exhibitions, service stations, and demonstrations during the colder months (November 1 through March 31), but could be driven without limitation during the warmer months (April 1 through October 31). The new law expands the months without driving limitations to March 1 through November 30. The law went into effect on August 20, 2021.

Thank you to Representative Andrew Chesney for sponsoring this bill and to those who supported this effort—congratulations!
