Overview: Legislation (S.B. 293) has been introduced to allow the titling of HUMVEES (High-Mobility Multipurpose Vehicles or HMMWV). The bill would restrict these vehicles from traveling on Interstate Highways. Under current Oklahoma law, HMMWV vehicles are not able to be titled in the state. A similar proposal failed to be passed during last year’s session. This bill is currently awaiting consideration in the Senate Committee on Finance.
