Vermont Bill to Provide Titles for Exempted Vehicles Amended and Approved by House; Sent to Senate for Concurrence

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
 

Vermont Bill to Provide Titles for Exempted Vehicles Amended and Approved by House; Sent to Senate for Concurrence

Legislation to ease the burden on hobbyists by requiring the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, upon the owner’s request, to issue titles for vehicles not currently required to be titled under Vermont law was amended and approved by the Vermont House.  The bill, which has now been incorporated into S.B. 122, will be sent back to the Senate for concurrence with the amendments.  These titles would only be available for vehicles 25-years old and older.  Vehicles 15-years old and older would continue not to require titles.

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Vermont Senate (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Support for S.B. 122

  • S.B. 122 would expand the out-of-state market for older Vermont motor vehicles and enhance their value to collectors.
     
  • S.B. 122 would require the state to issue an “exempt vehicle title” if the applicant pays the applicable fee and the Commissioner is satisfied that the applicant is the owner of the vehicle, a Vermont resident and the vehicle is not subject to any liens or encumbrances.
     
  • S.B. 122 requires assignment of a new vehicle identification number, if the vehicle does not have one      

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the Vermont Senate immediately by e-mail to request their support for S.B. 122.  

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.
