Missouri Legislation Dies for the Year as Legislature Adjourns


Several bills introduced in Missouri in 2016 failed to be approved by both houses of the legislature prior to the adjournment of the session.   

  • Legislation (H.B. 1400) to allow a camping or fifth-wheel trailer more than 25-years old to be permanently registered for a $25 fee was not considered in a vote by the full Senate, after having been approved by the House.  The bill also allowed those possessing a year of manufacture license plate more than 25 years old to use the plate as a historic trailer plate if the configuration of letters and numbers have not been issued to someone else.
  • Legislation (S.B. 708) to exempt motor vehicles that are at least ten years old from the state and local sales tax on the titling of motor vehicles was not considered before the legislature adjourned.  The bill recognized that many state citizens that require inexpensive transportation rely on the availability and affordability of older cars. The bill did not apply to motor vehicles with a sales price of more than $15,000.       

Thank you to those who participated in supporting these bills.
