URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)

 
Anti-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Approved by Senate Committee; Could Become Law if Passed by Full Senate
 
Legislation (H.B. 1252) that would allow cities to remove inoperable vehicles from private property if the vehicle is deemed a “nuisance” under a local ordinance was approved by the Arkansas Senate City, County & Local Affairs Committee.  The bill was already passed by the full Arkansas House of Representatives.  The bill will would become law if passed by the full Senate and signed by the governor.   
 
Please Contact All Members of the Arkansas Senate (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 1252
 
·         H.B. 1252 provides no reasonable safeguards for legitimate automotive hobbyists that choose to work on inoperable collector vehicles on private property.
 
·         H.B. 1252 could outlaw the repair or modification of certain motor vehicles that are undergoing restoration.
 
·         H.B. 1252 could outlaw the maintenance of parts cars for motor vehicles undergoing restoration.
 
·         H.B. 1252 establishes no provisions that would enable vehicles located out of public view to avoid being classified as abandoned.   
 
DON’T DELAY!  Please contact all members of the Arkansas Senate immediately to request their opposition to H.B. 1252. 
 
Please e-mail a copy of your letters to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
