You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 19 unfairly raises the age of vehicles eligible to be registered as antique vehicles from at least 25 years old to at least 50 years old.
  • H.B. 19 unreasonably increase the initial registration fee and transfer of license plate fee. It also creates a new annual validation fee.
  • H.B. 19 mandates specified insurance policies without legitimate cause.
  • H.B. 19 makes it more difficult to register legitimate antique vehicles, which are already limited to club activities, parades, exhibitions, tours, and other related activities, and not to be used for general transportation.

Overview:  SAN-opposed legislation (H.B. 19) has been introduced in Wyoming to significantly restrict eligibility of antique vehicle registration. Currently, an antique vehicle must be at least 25 years old and antique vehicle registration only requires an initial fee. If passed, antique vehicles would be required to be at least 50 years old, and the antique vehicle registration would be required to be renewed annually. The bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee and awaits consideration by the full Senate.
