Senate Version of Minnesota Bill to Ease Process for Designating Classic Cars Approved by Committee; Moves to Senate Floor


Legislation (S.F. 2613) to provide for a program that will allow classic car status to be determined from nationally recognized standards and guides was approved by the Senate Transportation and Public Safety Committee and has been sent to the floor for a vote by all Senators.  The House version of the bill was approved by the Transportation Policy Committee and now moves to the House floor for a vote by all members (/legislative-alerts/minnesota/minnesota-bill-ease-process-designating-classic-cars-approved).  Under the current system, this status must be designated by the state through a time-consuming amendment to the law.
