Wisconsin Bill to Restrict Eligibility and Increase Fees for Collector and Hobbyist Vehicles Fails to Meet Legislative Deadline

We were heard! SAN-opposed legislation (A.B. 860) in Wisconsin to restrict eligibility and raise fees for collector and hobbyist vehicle registration failed to pass the Assembly prior to the required legislative deadline. Under current law, these vehicles must be more than 20 years old and are required to pay twice the registration fee as the type of vehicle being registered. A.B. 860 would have further limited each designation to vehicles 30 years old and older and would have increased the registration fee to three times the rate.

However, this bill may be reintroduced in the 2021 session—please encourage others to get involved now by signing-up for updates from the SEMA Action Network (SAN) without cost or obligation.

Special thanks and congratulations to those who participated in opposing this anti-hobby bill!
