URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Amended Maryland Bill to Allow Single License Plate for Certain Historic Cars Approved by House; Moves to Senate
Amended House legislation (H.B. 524) to require the issuance of only a single license plate for historic vehicles and street rods was approved by the full Maryland House of Delegates. The bill now moves to the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee for consideration. Under the amendment, the single plate option would be available only to owners of Class L (historic vehicles) that are 60 years old and older. The bill no longer affords this option to Class N (street rods) or later model historics. While this is not the bill we wanted, we believe it is still worthy of your support.
We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee (Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 524
- While the amended H.B. 524 is a heavily diluted version of the original bill, it is still an improvement over current law.
- H.B. 524 would save money, conserve resources and bring Maryland in line with other states that are moving to a single plate requirement for certain cars.
- H.B. 524 would protect the aesthetic contours of some collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 524.
