Wyoming Bill to Significantly Restrict Antique Vehicles Killed by Legislature
Threat avoided, Wyoming! SAN-opposed legislation (H.B. 19) to significantly restrict eligibility of antique vehicle registration has been killed by the state legislature. Currently, an antique vehicle must be at least 25 years old and antique vehicle registration only requires an initial fee. The bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee but failed to be approved by the full Senate—killing it for the year.
If passed, antique vehicles would have been required to be at least 50 years old, and the antique vehicle registration would be required to be renewed annually. The bill would have made 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. It also mandated specified insurance policies without legitimate cause.
However, this bill may be reintroduced in the 2022 session—please encourage others to get involved now by signing-up for the SEMA Action Network (SAN) without cost or obligation.
Special thanks and congratulations to those who opposed this anti-hobby bill!
