You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 2950 would save money, conserve resources and acknowledges that antique vehicles are owned solely as collector's items.
  • H.B. 2950 provides added incentive to owners of qualifying antique vehicles (more than 25-years old) to register as “antique.”
  • H.B. 2950 creates a more reasonable standard for antique collectors and expands opportunities for these prized vehicles to be enjoyed.
  • H.B. 2950 recognizes that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States.

Overview: SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 2950) has been introduced in West Virginia to create an "Antique Fleet" plate program whereby the owner of five or more antique vehicles would be able to use a single registration plate. The owner would be required to register every antique vehicle upon which the plate will be displayed. Currently, antique license plates are available for vehicles that are older than 25 years old and owned solely as collector's items. The annual registration fee for an "Antique Fleet" plate would be $2 per year for each antique vehicle registered, valid for one year, and renewed annually. The bill passed the House Technology and Infrastructure Committee and awaits consideration by the House Government Organization Committee.
