The sponsor for legislation (H.B. 2570) to allow the City of Newport News to adopt a more restrictive inoperable vehicle ordinance has withdrawn the legislation from consideration by the House Committee on Counties, Cities and Towns. Under the bill, the city could have adopted an ordinance prohibiting any person from keeping more than ONE inoperable motor vehicle on private property except within a fully enclosed building. Further, the bill required that the one vehicle now be shielded from view by the “installation of an opaque fence.”
Thank you and congratulations to all who participated in the effort to oppose H.B. 2570.
