Ohio Humvee Legislation Dies as Legislature Adjourns

   

Legislation (S.B. 331/H.B. 710) was introduced that allows for the titling of High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles as “historical motor vehicles”. “Historical motor vehicles” means a vehicle owned solely as a collector's item and for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades, and similar uses, but that in no event is used for general transportation. Under current law, HUMVEES are not able to be titled for any on-road use in the state. The bills failed to receive a vote in the House Committee on Transportation and Public and the Senate Committee on Transportation, Commerce, and Workforce. The bills may be carried-over for the 2019 legislative session.

Thank you to those who voiced support for these bills.
