Maryland Bill to Restrict the Historic Vehicle Emissions Inspection Exemption Withdrawn

We were heard! SAN-opposed legislation (H.B. 1258) in Maryland to impose an emissions inspection requirement on historic vehicles less than 40 years old was withdrawn from consideration. Under current law, all historic vehicles are exempt from emissions inspections. Because of a strong outpouring of enthusiast opposition to the measure, the hearing for this bill was canceled and the House Environment and Transportation Committee gave it an unfavorable report. 

However, this bill may be reintroduced in the 2021 session—please encourage others to get involved now by signing-up for the SEMA Action Network (SAN) without cost or obligation.

Special thanks and congratulations to those who participated in opposing this anti-hobby bill!
