New Hampshire Pro-Hobby Inoperable Vehicle Bill Passes

Authored by SEMA Action Network member Representative Lawrence Artz (R-Nashua), a bill to exempt from “junkyard” control regulations those antique vehicles owned and maintained by automotive collectors was passed by the New Hampshire Legislature and signed into law. 
 
Antique motor vehicles, defined as those over 25 years old, are only required to be stored and repaired by the owner out of public view by means of inside storage, fencing, trees, or shrubbery.  The measure applies only to noncommercial antique vehicle restoration activities and limits to 5 the total number of vehicles stored outside.
