Illinois Bill to Expand Use of Antique Vehicles Approved by Senate Transportation Committee; Moves to Full Senate

A SEMA-supported bill to provide for an expanded-use antique vehicle registration class that would allow antique vehicles and replicas to be driven without limitation during the warmer part of the year (April 1 through October 31) has been approved by the Senate Transportation Committee. The bill already passed the full Illinois House of Representatives. Under the bill, expanded-use antiques are limited to traveling to and from car shows, exhibitions, servicing or demonstration during the colder months (November 1 through March 31). Regular antique vehicle registration would still be available for a lower fee to hobbyists who would prefer only operating their vehicle on a limited-use basis throughout the year. The bill will next be considered on the floor of the Illinois Senate by all members.
