New York Legislature Adjourns for the Year

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The New York state legislature failed to complete action on a series of bills that would have had a positive impact on the automotive hobby. Among these are legislation to allow historical vehicle owners to only pay a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration; legislation to provide for the issuance of special historic vehicle plates to be issued to owners for display on a trailer towing a historic vehicle; legislation to provide for the issuance of a single registration plate and require that the plate be attached on the rear of all vehicles; and SEMA-model legislation to create a vehicle titling and registration classification for street rods and custom vehicles (including kit cars and replicas) and exempt these vehicles from emissions inspections.
