New York Legislation Dies for the Year as Legislature Adjourns

   

Several bills considered by the New York State Legislature in 2018 failed to be approved by both houses of the legislature prior to the adjournment of the session.

•    Legislation (A.B.  2405) would have provided that historical vehicle owners only pay a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration. A.B. 2405 failed to receive consideration in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
 
•    Legislation (A.B. 6563) would have defined a street rod as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 25 years old and manufactured after 1948. Under the bill, kit cars and replica vehicles would have been assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble. The bill failed to receive consideration in the Assembly Transportation Committee.
 
•    Legislation (A.B. 2791) would have established that only one license plate is required to be displayed on the rear of a motor vehicle; however, the bill failed to pass the  Assembly Transportation Committee.
 
Thank you to those who voiced support for these bills.
