URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Nevada Bill to Restrict Eligibility for Classic Vehicle Registration
We are currently in discussions with Nevada Assemblymember Marilyn Kirkpatrick regarding the legislation (A.B. 326) to alter the requirements for vehicles eligible for registration as a “classic vehicle.” Assemblymember Kirkpatrick and her husband are classic vehicle owners themselves and together we are attempting to identify ways that we can ensure against abuse of the classic registration plate while maintaining its use for legitimate collectors. Currently, the bill restricts the classic plates to passenger cars and requires that owners provide proof that the vehicle is driven solely for personal use and not more than 5,000 miles during an annual registration period. The owner would also be required to have another passenger car or motorcycle registered during the entire registration period. The bill also would now exclude light commercial vehicles from eligibility.
Assemblymember Kirkpatrick is open to our suggestions to eliminate the worst elements of the bill while finding provisions that will maintain the integrity of the classic vehicle plate. We will keep you updated as these discussions continue.
