URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT
Wyoming Bill to Ease Burden on Vehicle Restorers Passed by House and Senate; Sent to Governor for Approval
A bill (H.B. 90) to ease the burden on hobbyists by providing an exemption from bonded title requirements has been passed in both the Wyoming House of Representatives and Senate. By allowing enthusiasts to title vehicles being restored for personal use without posting bond, the exemption reduces costs associated with titling hobby vehicles when an original title was never issued or can no longer be located. H.B. 90 allows restorers to title their completed works by submitting an affidavit of vehicle ownership, a notarized bill of sale, a written statement of the value of the vehicle (based on a national appraisal guide or appraisal performed by a dealer) and a VIN inspection. To prevent abuse of the new procedure, titles issued under this procedure will not be transferable for the first 180 days after issuance. The bill now moves to Governor Matt Mead for his signature and enactment into law.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact Wyoming Governor Matt Mead immediately by phone or e-mail to request his support for H.B. 90.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.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.
