Oklahoma Bills to Create Titling for HUMVEES Eligible for Reconsideration In 2020
Legislation (S.B. 293/H.B. 1851) to allow the titling of HUMVEES (High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles or HMMWV) failed to pass before the Oklahoma legislature adjourned for 2019.
The bills defined a “High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle” or “HMMWV” as a four-wheel drive tactical military vehicle that can carry a wide variety of military hardware, a vehicle more commonly known as a HUMVEE.
The bills would have restricted these vehicles from traveling on Interstate Highways. Under current law, HMMWV vehicles are not able to be titled in the state. A similar proposal failed to be passed during last year’s session.
By rule, each bill is eligible to be reconsidered during next year’s legislative session.
Thank you to those who voiced support for these bills.
