You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 58 would now only subject historic vehicles of model year 1986 and later to equipment repair orders.  These repair orders would be issued only for vehicle safety equipment that is in disrepair and would require a subsequent inspection to determine that the repair had been effected.
     
  • H.B. 58 as amended does not subject historic vehicles of model year 1986 and later to undergo periodic inspections.
     
  • H.B. 58 would specifically prohibit the use of historic vehicles for employment, transportation to employment or school and for commercial purposes.
  • H.B. 58 still does not directly address the issue of owners using these limited-use vehicles as daily drivers. 

Overview: Legislation (H.B. 58) that originally appeared to subject historic vehicles of model year 1986 and later to undergo periodic safety inspections was approved by the Maryland Senate.  An amended version of the bill now specifically excludes historic vehicles from the requirement that they receive an inspection certificate prior to titling and registration.  However, the bill would still prohibit the use of historic vehicles for employment, transportation to employment or school and for commercial purposes.   The bill also subjects historic vehicles of model year 1986 and later to equipment repair orders.  Having already been approved by the House, the measure will next be sent to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.
