Michigan Legislature Adjourns

A pair of SAN-supported bills died as the Michigan legislature adjourned its 2019-2020 legislative session. To follow is a brief summary: 

  • Legislation (S.B. 344, S.B. 345, and S.B. 346) to allow for the titling and registration of military surplus and historic military surplus vehicles passed the Senate but did not pass the House Transportation Committee. These bills were similar to a bill (H.B. 4866) that was vetoed by Governor Whitmer in 2020. Currently, military surplus vehicles are not able to be titled or registered for use on highways in the state. 
  • Legislation (S.B. 1146) to create two legacy license plates to be available for display on all vehicles ailed to pass the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Currently, authentic vintage plates may only be displayed on historic vehicles 26 years old or older, owned solely as collector’s items, and used only for parades and certain other events.

Thank you to everyone who voiced support for these bills.
