URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
 

Washington State Bill to Exempt Collectible Vehicles From Emissions Tests Approved by Senate; Moves to Governor

Legislation (H.B. 2359) to exempt collectible vehicles of any age from emissions testing was approved by the Washington State Senate.  Having already been passed by the House the bill will now be sent to Governor Jay Inslee for his signature and enactment into law.

We Urge You to Contact Governor Jay Inslee (Contact Info Below) Immediately To Request Support for H.B. 2359

  • H.B. 2359 defines collectible vehicles as a vehicle of unique or rare design, of limited production, and an object of curiosity that is maintained primarily for use in car club activities, exhibitions, parades, or other functions of public interest or for a private collection, and is used only infrequently for other purposes. 
     
  • H.B. 2359 requires that the vehicle have collectible vehicle or classic automobile insurance coverage that restricts the collectible vehicle mileage or use, or both, and requires the owner to have another vehicle for personal use.
     
  • H.B. 2359 recognizes the minimal impact of collectible vehicles on emissions and air quality.
     
  • H.B. 2359 acknowledges that collectible vehicles constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction.
     
  • H.B. 2359 endorses the fact that collectible vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven. 

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Jay Inslee immediately to request his support for H.B. 2359.
