Maryland Bill to Increase Age Requirement for Historic Vehicle Registration Amended and Approved by Committee; Moves to Full House

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
 

Maryland Bill to Increase Age Requirement for Historic Vehicle Registration Amended and Approved by Committee; Moves to Full House

Legislation (H.B. 811) to increase the age requirement for vehicles eligible for registration as “historic motor vehicles” in Maryland was amended and approved by the House Environment and Transportation Committee.  Under the amended bill, the age requirement would be raised from 20 to at least 30 years old.  Previously, the bill called for the age threshold to be raised to 25 years old and older.  The bill will next be considered in a vote by the full House of Delegates.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Maryland House of Delegates (List Attached Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 811

  • H.B. 811 makes it more difficult to register legitimate historic vehicles, which are already limited to club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and occasional pleasure driving.
     
  • H.B. 811 would deny vehicles 20-30 years old from certain benefits, including the special historic license plate, reduced registration fees and exemptions from equipment and emissions inspection requirements.  The state is focused on collecting additional registration revenues at the expense of historic vehicle owners.
     
  • H.B. 811 seeks to address unsubstantiated claims of abuse without providing any real data. The MVA is already authorized by regulation to suspend the registration of any historic vehicle for use that is inconsistent with the registration requirements.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the Maryland House of Delegates immediately by phone or e-mail to voice your opinion on H.B. 811.
