Maryland Bill to Allow Single License Plate for Certain Hobby Cars Amended and Approved by Committee; Moves to Full House

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
 

Maryland Bill to Allow Single License Plate for Certain Hobby Cars Amended and Approved by Committee; Moves to Full House

House legislation (H.B. 524) to require the issuance of only a single license plate for historic vehicles and street rods was drastically amended and approved by the House Environment and Transportation Committee.  The bill now moves to the full House for a vote by all members.  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 Maryland House of Delegates (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 House of Delegates immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 524.    

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.  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.
