You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 351 recognizes the minimal impact of collectible vehicles on emissions and air quality.
  • H.B. 351 acknowledges that collectible vehicles constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction.  
  • H.B. 351 endorses the fact that collectible vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven.  
  • H.B. 351, if enacted into law, would become effective on January 1, 2017.

Overview: Legislation (H.B. 351) to exempt rare or historically significant vehicles from emissions control requirements was approved by the Legislature.  Under current law, only vehicles 20 or more years old are exempt.  The bill now moves to the governor for her signature and enactment into law.
