Legislation was introduced in Ohio that allows for the titling of HUMVEEs as “historical motor vehicles.”
Legislation (S.B. 331/H.B. 710) has been introduced in Ohio to allow High-Mobility Multipurpose Vehicles (HMMWV or HUMVEE) to be titled as “historical motor vehicles.” The term refers to a vehicle owned solely as a collector’s item and for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and similar uses, but not used for general transportation. Under current law, HUMVEES are not able to be titled for any on-road use in the state. The bills are currently in the House Committee on Transportation and Public and the Senate Committee on Transportation, Commerce and Workforce.
