Rhode Island Bill to Allow Year of Manufacture License Plates to be Considered on Thurs., May 1

Legislation (H.B. 8011) to authorize the Division of Motor Vehicles to issue replica year of manufacture plates for antique vehicles will be considered by the House Finance Committee on Thursday, May 1, 2014.  The bill also allows the state to approve for use plates that were issued by the state in the exact year of manufacture of the vehicle. 

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Rhode Island House Finance Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 8011

  • In Rhode Island, an antique motor car is “any motor vehicle which is more than twenty-five (25) years old. Unless fully inspected and meeting inspection requirements, the vehicle may be maintained solely for use in exhibitions, club activities, parades, and other functions of public interest and may not be used primarily for the transportation of passengers or goods over any public highway.”

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact all members of the Rhode Island House Finance Committee to request support for H.B. 8011.  

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
