Utah House Passes Bill to Classify Vehicles 30+ Years Old as "Vintage Vehicles"

http://www.semasan.com/main/main.aspx?id=62893
Legislation (H.B. 221) to allow vehicles 30 years old and older to be classified as “vintage vehicles” was approved by the Utah House of Representatives. Currently, Utah reserves the “vintage vehicle” class only to vehicles 40 years old and older. Under the bill, “vintage vehicles” 30 - 40 years old would be charged a $45 annual registration fee. When the vehicle reaches 40 years old, the registrant would pay a one-time $40 fee. Vintage vehicles are exempted from annual emissions and safety inspections. The bill now moves to the Senate Rules Committee for consideration.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Utah Senate Rules Committee (List Attached Below) Immediately to Request Their Support for H.B. 221

• Utah exempts vehicles manufactured prior to 1968 from emissions inspections. Vehicles manufactured after that date must be registered as “vintage vehicles” or “customs” to qualify for this exemption.

• H.B. 221 acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of older vehicles, such as the vintage vehicles targeted for inclusion in the “vintage vehicle” exemption.

• H.B. 221 recognizes that such vehicles constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet and are well-maintained and infrequently operated.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Utah Senate Rules Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 221.

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. 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.
