What Is SAN?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The SEMA Action Network (SAN) is a nationwide partnership between vehicle clubs, enthusiasts and members of the specialty auto parts industry who want to protect their hobby. Founded in 1997, the SAN was designed to help stamp out legislative threats to the automotive hobby and pass favorable laws. The SAN regularly:

Rallies the support of 3,000-plus car clubs, thousands of individual contacts, and 100-plus publications, with an estimated reach of 36 million enthusiasts nationwide, amplifying SEMA’s political voice on issues affecting the specialty equipment auto parts industry.
Sends out action alerts to generate an abundance of responses to state and/or federal legislative actions and regulatory proposals.
Issues timely updates of legislative and regulatory developments.

THERE ARE NO COSTS, FEES OR HASSLES to participate in the SAN.

The concept is simple: SEMA provides detailed, regularly updated information on legislative and regulatory issues that impact your hobby. The more hands that touch this information, the more eyes that read this information and the more people that stand up and do something about this information…the more effectively we protect our hobby. If action is required, we will urge SAN members to contact legislators and regulators to express support or opposition to a particular bill or proposal that directly affects the automotive hobby.

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), is a non-profit trade association composed of more than 6,800 member companies including manufacturers and distributors, representing the specialty equipment automotive industry. All combined, the markets add up to over $34 billion in retail business annually. On behalf of our industry, we are fighting to preserve the rights of enthusiasts to use and enjoy their vehicles.

United groups of automotive hobbyists are a proven political force. To date, SAN efforts nationwide have resulted in positive outcomes on a wide range of issues, including vehicle scrappage ("clunker") laws, equipment standards, registration classifications, emissions-test exemptions, and hobbyist rights. You can be certain that these issues will continue to pop up at the state and federal level in the future.

You can make a difference by joining SAN now!

The information SAN provides you:
Timely notice of legislative/regulatory developments in your state and nationwide trends.
Sample letters to forward to state legislators urging specific action.
Talking points for conversations and meetings with state legislators.

We hope you will join the SAN, which currently has contacts in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, as well as in Canada. If you would like to become a contact, join SEMA Action Network today!

Save the Bonneville Salt Flats! : @ [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
Bonneville Salt Flats (BSF) is the densely-packed salt remnants of an ancient lake bed formed over thousands of years. Originally 96,000 acres in size, the unique geologic phenomenon in northwestern Utah has been reduced to about 30,000 acres as a direct consequence of an adjoining potash mining operation. The State of Utah nominated the BSF for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It was designated in 1975. Besides sodium chloride (table salt), the BSF is composed of potassium, magnesium lithium and other minerals. Water and wind shape the BSF throughout the year. A shallow layer of standing water floods the surface during the cooler months (November-May). The water slowly evaporates over the warmer spring and summer months while the wind acts to smooth the surface. The BSF is almost 5 feet thick near the center but only an inch or two at the outer edges.

Use:
Beyond its irreplaceable beauty, the BSF possesses rare physical qualities which make it a destination for land speed racing, filmmaking and sightseers. The BSF has been used for racing since 1914 and countless land speed records have been set at the site. For example, the 300, 400, 500, and 600 mile per hour land speed barriers were broken on its natural straightway. The world-famous Speed Week dates back to 1949 and the BSF’s protected status recognizes the importance of racing as a compatible use.

Management:
The BSF is managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Beyond its placement on the National Historic Registry, the BLM issued the BSF Recreation Area Management Plan (Plan) in 1985 and established criteria for managing the lands as the “Bonneville Salt Flats Special Recreation Management Area” (SRMA) and as the “Area of Critical Environmental Concern” (ACEC).

Potash Mining:
Potash has been commercially produced since 1939 on federal lands leased by the BLM immediately south and east of the BSF. Mineral saturated water (brine) is collected from a shallow aquifer in about 100 miles of open ditches throughout the 88,000 acres of leased land. A brine well also taps into a 1,000 foot deep aquifer for additional production. The collected brine is pumped into an 8,000 acre pond to evaporate water and capture potash. The solution is refined further in a series of smaller evaporation and harvest ponds, from which the potash is eventually separated from the salt in a mill. For decades, brine collection was a one-way system for salt removal from the BSF. Between 1963 and 1982, an estimated 11 million tons of salt was withdrawn from the salt flats via the drainage ditch system south of Interstate 80 and along the raceway territory north of I-80. By the mid-1990s, the historic raceway had lost over 18 inches of salt crust. According to hydrology and surface morphology studies commissioned by the BLM, the erosion was a direct result of the extraction of salt and other minerals through the groundwater mining operation, and a disruption of the hydrologic cycle which replenishes the salt crust.

Salt Laydown Project:
There is a demonstrated process to replenish the BSF salt crust. In 1997, brine water was pumped back onto the salt flats by the mining contractor at the rate of 1.5 million tons of salt each year for 5 years. Over each winter, a high-quality brine (water and salt) left-over from the potash mining operation was pumped to the north side of I-80 and discharged onto the southern portion of the BSF. The salt flats are covered with water from rain and snow for much of the year. The discharged brine dissolved and mixed in the transient pond and then spread across the salt basin. The pond evaporates during the hot summer months, allowing the pumped salt to become part of the crust. During the five-year program, the salt flats increased in thickness and hardness and the project significantly improved the aquifer which supports the salt crust volume. A BLM commissioned study concluded that the laydown project “demonstrated that sodium chloride in brine removed from the BSF for mineral extraction can be replenished. …The laydown project helped maintain the ion mass balance in the shallow-brine aquifer associated with the BSF by replacing 4.2 million tons of salt estimated to have been removed during the five-year project, while providing a net addition of 2 million tons of salt to the shallow brine aquifer.”

Short-Term Solution Needs to be Permanent:
The successful five-year laydown project came to an end. Although some replenishment continues, the duration is for a much shorter period of time. The brine water may not have time to percolate down to the underground reservoir and the quantity of salt returned to the BSF is less. Solution: a binding agreement on amount, quality and duration of a successful laydown project.

“Historic” Win for Dream Cruisers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Michigan Law Opens New Opportunities for Vintage Vehicles

Remember the days when roadways were jam-packed with cars sporting whitewalls, tailfins and chrome bumpers? It was a time when disc brakes, power windows and air conditioning weren’t standard equipment and rock bands sang about Little Deuce Coupes, GTOs and Hot Rod Lincolns. Well, welcome to Michigan in August!

In a day and time when miles per gallon often trump miles per hour in automotive conversation, the rules of the road generally aren’t intended to favor vintage vehicles. However, a new Michigan law not only benefits classics but encourages their use. Just in time for the famous Woodward Dream Cruise, Senate Bill 1146 will allow registered historic motor vehicles (more than 25 years old) unlimited use as “exhibition” vehicles the entire month of August each year. Sponsored in the legislature by Senator Mike Kowall, the bill was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder. The new law providesMichigan historic vehicle owners the opportunity to enjoy recreational driving in the month of August in addition to the other sanctioned uses. By implication, the law also acknowledges the immeasurable time and money automotive hobbyists, especially historic vehicle owners, invest in their cars.

While, in recent times, some states have sought to restrict the usage of “historic” vehicles, toughen eligibility criteria and target old cars as a revenue source, Senator Kowall has stood up for them with this and other legislation. Kowall is a dyed-in-the-wool gearhead. Born into a family of automotive enthusiasts, he became disheartened by citations being issued to drivers of “historic” vehicles in his area. To combat this activity and help ensure another spectacular Dream Cruise, S.B. 1146 was introduced. Major groundwork for this bill had been laid by Senate Resolution No. 159 which commemorates August 2012 as Automotive Heritage Month in the state of Michigan, of which Kowall was also a sponsor.

Automotive enthusiasts everywhere can look to this law as another example of an informed state government working effectively on our behalf. Upon being introduced, S.B. 1146 moved through the Michigan state legislature with a speed akin to a racing vehicle hitting its top end. In one month’s time, the Senate Committee on Transportation (of which Kowall is vice chair) quickly passed the bill to the entire Senate, then the House Transportation Committee and full House of Representatives before reaching the governor’s desk.

Not only is Kowall a long-time member of the SAN-supported State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus, a bipartisan group comprised of state lawmakers whose common thread is a love and appreciation for automobiles, but his wife Eileen who serves in the Michigan House of Representatives is a member as well. Although she is not nearly the automotive aficionado that her husband is, Eileen helps maintain the couple’s own classic car collection. However, they are not the only partners to share membership in the caucus. Others include Senator Ted Gaines and Assemblymember Beth Gaines, both in the California legislature, as well as New Hampshire Senator Andy Sanborn and Representative Laurie Sanborn.

Credit for the victory of S.B. 1146 is owed in no small part to the passionate Michigan hobbyists who answered the call and participated in letting lawmakers know their feelings about this issue. We encourage SAN members to continue to make in-roads with legislators in their state so that the network can report more successes like this. “Spend eight hours getting to know your legislators, and follow their progress,” Kowall advises. “Offer your special car to them for a parade appearance. This small investment could pay off 10-fold!” Hobby-friendly lawmakers in your state, members of the State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus, can be found on the SAN website at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

LEGISLATIVE QUICK HITS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Iowa Ethanol/Exhaust Noise/Historic Registration:
SEMA-opposed legislation in Iowa to change requirements on gas pumps across the state to only require labeling for unblended gasoline and E85 officially died when the legislature adjourned for the year. Current law in Iowa requires labeling when gasoline is blended with any amount of ethanol. If the bill had been enacted into law, it would have removed labeling requirements for ethanol-blended gasoline containing 15% or less ethanol, thereby increasing the risk of misfueling and potential engine damage. In addition, SEMA-model legislation that would have allowed Iowa’s vehicle hobbyists to install and use aftermarket modified exhaust systems that meet a 95-decibel limit was not given committee consideration before the legislature adjourned for the year. Similarly, a bill to allow any vehicle that is 25 years old or older and used only for exhibition, entertainment or educational purposes to be registered for a minimal annual $5 fee was also not given consideration.

New York Hobbyist Bills:
At adjournment of this year’s legislative session, the New York State Legislature failed to complete action on a series of bills that would have had an impact on the automotive hobby. Among these bills are measures to allow historical vehicle owners to only pay a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration; SEMA-model legislation to create a vehicle titling and registration classification for street rods and custom vehicles; legislation to provide for the issuance of special historic vehicle plates to be issued to owners for display on a trailer towing the historic vehicle; and a SAN-opposed bill to establish a progressive purchase surcharge for some new motor vehicles based on state calculations of carbon emissions.

States, Province Celebrate the Hobby
New York, West Virginia, Idaho and Manitoba Join New Mexico and Hawaii in Recognizing Collector Car Appreciation Day
Thanks to the efforts of Assemblyman Bill Reilich, the New York State Assembly issued a resolution memorializing Governor Andrew Cuomo to proclaim July 13, 2012, as Collector Car Appreciation Day in the state. In West Virginia, at the request of Delegate Gary Howell, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin issued a proclamation recognizing the occasion, while Idaho Governor Butch Otter did the same in his state at the request of organizers of Northwest Motorfest. New York, West Virginia and Idaho joined New Mexico and Hawaii as states that officially acknowledged the celebration. In Canada, the Manitoba Minister of Culture, Heritage and Tourism issued a proclamation designating Collector Car Appreciation Day in the province thanks to the efforts of the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs. The minister also proclaimed the month of July 2012 to be Collector Car Appreciation Month. Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate passed Senate Resolution 452 at the SAN’s request to mark the day’s significance in raising awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. The date marked the third commemoration in what has become an annual event.

Tag and Title Toolbox: The One-Stop Shop for Everything You Need to Register and Title Your Hobby Car

On behalf of hobbyists nationwide, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) maintains a compilation of state laws and regulations governing specialty motor vehicles. The compilation is a one-stop shop for state resources listing each state’s specialty vehicle definitions, registration and titling provisions; inspection criteria; and other requirements and exemptions. Known as the Tag & Title Toolbox, the compilation also includes key administrative forms that can be printed for titling and registering specialty vehicles at DMVs nationwide.
The term “specialty vehicle” includes the following vehicle classes: ancient, antique, assembled, classic, collectible, collector, custom, exhibition, historic, homemade, horseless carriage, kit, modified, parade, parts, rebuilt, reconstructed, replica, show, special interest, specially constructed, street cruiser, street rod and vintage. Given that a uniform system for defining such specialty vehicles does not exist among the states, applicable definitions for each state are listed separately at the beginning of each state’s document to clarify the language in the statutes and regulations.

The information is current for 2012 but subject to change in the future. The SAN advises hobbyists to also directly consult the statutes and regulations for states of interest to ensure the accuracy of the information.

Driving and Defending History

Historic Vehicle Owner Protects His Automotive Passion
1931 Ford Model A Town Sedan
Owner: Jonathan Miller, Woodbine, Maryland


After searching for almost two years and traveling all over the United States, I eventually found my Ford in December of 2011. The vehicle was less than three hours away from my home. One day I was looking for cars online and there was an ad with pictures of the car posted by the seller’s grandson. I turned out to be the first caller and took a friend, a Model A expert, with me the next day to inspect the car. The car was in better condition than the photos suggested, having been restored in 2008 and driven about 7,000 miles since the restoration. I was thoroughly impressed. Although I knew the brake system would need to be rebuilt, I bought it on the spot since it was the exact car I had been looking for. Using my pickup and a rented trailer, I brought my Town Sedan home the next weekend. I spent the winter rebuilding the entire brake system in my home garage, learning as I went, and switched to cast iron brake drums that work great. Not built as a trailer queen, my Model A is an outstanding driver and performs just like it should. I consider myself not only the owner, but the life-long custodian of this fine automobile and intend to keep it running as Henry Ford designed it. I love it!

Earlier this year, I had the chance to defend my rights as a “historic” vehicle owner in Maryland. I was attending one of our Greater Baltimore Model A Ford Club meetings when the topic of H.B. 550 came up (see “A Sunday Drive” in the April 2012 issue of Driving Force). I had no idea that my state was seeking to place new restrictions on vintage vehicles like mine. Along with many other hobbyists in the state, I went on an immediate personal letter writing campaign. A friend in the club told me that the SEMA Action Network (SAN) was leading this effort, so I signed up. Now, I will know about legislation like this earlier and will be able to help our community’s effort from the beginning.

CLUB SPOTLIGHT

Winning Formula

A Student of Science and Automobiles Recognized by the Indiana SAAC
After 35 years, the Indiana Region of the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) had long desired “to find an opportunity to give back to our young people.” This year, the club’s dream became reality as Benjamin Kasting of Ft. Wayne, Indiana, became the first award winner of the Indiana SAAC Merit Scholarship Program. Kasting, a chemistry and music major entering Ohio Northern University, was recognized at the 35th Anniversary Shelby Spring Fling Banquet. For his efforts, which included an impressive high school grade-point average and outstanding essay highlighting his well-rounded skill sets, Ben will receive a $500 prize toward his freshman tuition.

As a regional car club whose membership is spread across about a dozen states, the Spring Fling is one of the few opportunities during the year for club members to spend time together as a whole. The annual gathering, which began in 1978, has become a chance to visit and reconnect with friends. Thus, the event has become as much a “family reunion” as much as a car show.

Upon completion of last year’s event, the Indiana SAAC volunteer committee discussed how to invest in the club’s future. With such strong roots in the “family” concept, the idea of rewarding young talent within the group developed quickly into an annual Indiana SAAC Merit Scholarship. The scholarship is open to members, their children and grandchildren who are college-bound and are directing their careers toward automotive-related fields. The award is based on academic achievement, community involvement and requires a written essay and three letters of recommendation.

The Indiana SAAC believes car clubs are a means to extend one’s family: “Treat the members as such and a club will be self-sustaining for generations.” This goal has certainly been reinforced by the creation of the scholarship. The SAN applauds this effort.

Thousands Gather to Honor Cultural Significance of the Automobile

On July 13, 2012, automotive enthusiasts, car clubs, civic organizations and businesses participated in celebrations to honor the third annual Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). Nearly 200 official events were held in the United States, Canada and Australia to commemorate the day throughout the month of July. The official events included car club cruise-ins, business open houses, specialty shows at automobile museums and "drive your collector car to work" displays. Scores of unofficial gatherings included car shows, picnics and cruise-ins.

"This annual celebration has brought thousands of collector car owners to the forefront, which translates into millions of dollars spent in pursuit of our passion—the love of the automobile," explained William "Skeeter" Rader, who hosted a celebration with his club, the Coachmen, in Newbury Park, California. "At the same time, we can recognize how the automobile has historically been so crucial in the growth of our society, both from a developmental perspective as well as in the creation of jobs."

This special day was designated by U.S. Senate Resolution 452 sponsored by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) at the request of the SEMA Action Network (SAN). Lawmakers in several states and Canada, including many local governments, followed the Senate's lead. New York, New Mexico, Idaho, West Virginia and Hawaii, along with the Canadian Provinces of Manitoba and Nova Scotia and the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, adopted their own resolutions commemorating the day. A gallery of more than 1,000 images from these gatherings is available in an online album found at the CCAD homepage on the SAN website ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).

Enjoy a sample of the coverage on the following pages. The SAN would like to thank everyone who supported our hobby's "holiday" this year. Stay tuned for the announcement of next year's celebration!

LEGISLATIVE QUICK HITS

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Massachusetts Exhaust Systems -: A bill to ban the "use and sale of any exhaust pipe that increases the sound emission of any vehicle including motorcycles" has been assigned for study. The study order authorizes the Joint Transportation Committee to meet during the legislature's recess to make an investigation of the bill and report to the General Court the results and its recommendations, if any, together with a draft of legislation necessary to carry the recommendations into effect. This action essentially kills activity on this bill for the year. An identical bill was introduced in 2009 and was set aside for study without any additional committee consideration. Several other Massachusetts bills were assigned for similar studies, including a bill to provide for the adjustment of registration fees based on vehicle weight and one to exempt new vehicles from motor-vehicle emissions inspections for the two years succeeding their manufacture year.

- Massachusetts "Gas Guzzlers" -: In a misguided attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, legislation was approved by the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture to establish a progressive purchase surcharge for some new motor vehicles based on state calculations of carbon emissions. Depending on the vehicle purchased, this surcharge could require owners to pay up to 10% of the price of the vehicle and would take effect July 1, 2013. Vehicles purchased by state residents outside the state would be similarly taxed. Funds collected under the program would be used in part to fund rebates for the purchase of such vehicles as hybrids and electric cars. If this effort is successful, the effects on a consumer's ability to purchase the vehicle of choice, not to mention vehicle safety, would be dramatic. The bill has now been referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means for consideration.

North Carolina Emissions: SAN-supported legislation to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles three years old and newer was signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue. Previous law required the inspection of all '96 and newer vehicles. The new law acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of the newer vehicles targeted for the exemption. The idea behind exempting any class of vehicles is to reduce costs while not losing appreciable emissions reductions. This strategy builds support for emissions-inspection programs, but also directs finite resources to where they will be most valuable in cleaning the air.

Pennsylvania Emissions: SAN-supported legislation to provide a 10-year emissions inspection exemption for newly registered vehicles was approved by the Senate Transportation Committee. Current law only provides a one-year exemption. The bill now moves to the Appropriations Committee for consideration. The bill acknowledges that it is senseless to test newer vehicles, the results of which demonstrate no significant air quality benefits.

29 Palms Base Expansion Threatens "King of the Hammers" + Other OHV Activities at Johnson Valley, California

The U.S. Marines are seeking to expand their base at Twentynine Palms, California, to include nearly 189,000 acres of adjacent land owned by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The land is a designated off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation area and site of "King of the Hammers" and other OHV events throughout the year. The Marines would provide the OHV community with limited access to 40,000 acres for 10 months a year. The proposal is included in a long-awaited final environmental impact statement (FEIS). Any land transfer requires congressional approval.
IAMC Award


Driving Force Recognized in International Competition


SEMA Action Network's own Driving Force again took home the gold medallion in the "Best Single Issue: Newsletter" category of the 21st International Automotive Media Awards. The International Automotive Media Competition, a function of the International Society for Vehicle Preservation, is a peer-judged awards program that recognizes excellence in all forms of automotive media.

"As the leader in legislative advocacy on behalf of the automotive hobby, the SAN relies upon Driving Force to reach thousands of enthusiasts regarding government activity in the states and in Washington, D.C.," said Steve McDonald, SEMA vice president of government affairs. "This continued recognition is a testament to its continued effectiveness in providing enthusiasts with the information they need to help effect pro-hobby governmental policies."

Tasteful Victory: Gearhead Rewarded for Getting Involved

1984 GMC S15
Owner: Nicholas Hill, Kuna, Idaho

Good fortune often comes unexpectedly and is certainly a welcome surprise. As he was preparing his dropped mini truck for the Northwest Motorfest, Nicholas Hill couldn't have foreseen the way the weekend was to unfold. He and the other attendees of the popular Boise, Idaho, event had plenty of reason to be excited by the spectacle of attractions. Meeting the featured guest, automotive media personality Courtney Hansen, was a priority for many amid a weekend jam-packed with automotive activities. Thankfully for Hill and the SAN, the stakes were raised again. At the conclusion of the event, Hill and a guest were randomly selected in a contest for new SAN registrants as the winners of dinner with Hansen and SAN Director Colby Martin.

"Is this for real?," asked Hill in disbelief after learning that he'd won the contest. "I never win anything." Throughout the weekend, Hansen, host of Spike TV's "Powerblock" and Velocity Television Network's "Vinsetta Garage," encouraged Hill and other fans to get involved with the SAN while she signed autographs. The dinner opportunity offered a bonus incentive for folks to sign up and help protect their hobby.

Although still "under construction," Hill drove his airbag-equipped pickup to the show and to dinner afterward. With help from friends Jeff Reed, Andy and Matt Pollnow, it currently sports LRD custom suspension and 17-in. Billet Specialties wheels. Future plans for the GMC include a small-block Chevy V8, a tubbed rearend and a Dallas Cowboys color scheme.

Northern Exposure: July Celebration Strengthens Ties Between Hobbyists and Government

On Friday, July 13, 2012, the Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs (M.A.A.C.) hosted its second annual Collector Car Appreciation Day event. Celebrated on the grounds of the Provincial Legislative Building and surrounding area in Winnipeg, Manitoba, spectators enjoyed about 500 specialty vehicles as well as displays from sponsors and charitable organizations. Flor Marcelino, Provincial Minister of Culture, Heritage and Tourism, read an official Proclamation recognizing Collector Car Appreciation Day and the month of July as Collector Car Appreciation Month in the province of Manitoba. A framed copy of U.S. Senate Resolution 452 was also on display. Other speakers appeared on behalf of civic and provincial governments, local law enforcement and Manitoba Public Insurance.

Put SAN on Your Mailing List!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Founded in 1997 with 13 clubs, M.A.A.C. represents automotive hobbyists in the province of Manitoba. Over the years, the province has become known for its array of specialty vehicles and as a consequence, the M.A.A.C. now consists of 20,000 members in more than 70 clubs. Ongoing relationship building and consultations with all levels of government by M.A.A.C. representatives has helped officials better understand the hobby. These bodies now recognize the value of automotive history brought to the Province of Manitoba through specialty vehicle organizations and vehicle owners. Communication between M.A.A.C. and the SAN has also helped the enthusiasts of Manitoba recognize and enjoy benefits like Collector Car Appreciation Day. "We look forward to developing a long and prosperous relationship with SEMA Vice President of Government Affairs Steve McDonald, SAN Director Colby Martin and the SAN to move this great hobby forward for many years to come," said M.A.A.C. Chairman Bob Chubala.

Massachusetts Residents ACT NOW!!!

Post by Brother Al on Wed Mar 20, 2013 12:34 am



Bill to Provide for Single License Plate Introduced in Massachusetts
Legislation (S.B. 1637) has been introduced in Massachusetts to require the issuance of only a single license plate for motor vehicles. The bill, favored by state hobbyists, requires that the single registration plate be attached on the rear of applicable motor vehicles. The bill will be considered by the Massachusetts Joint Transportation Committee.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Joint Transportation Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 1637
•S.B. 1637 would save money, conserve resources and bring Massachusetts in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
•S.B. 1637 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some fabricated and original bumpers.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Joint Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 1637.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. 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.
