Wisconsin Legislature Approves Amended Motor Vehicle Registration Rights Bill; Moves to Governor

Legislation that originally sought to provide legal registration to hobby vehicles with a clear title, required safety equipment and in good working order was passed by the Wisconsin Senate and House and now moves to Governor Scott Walker for his signature and enactment into law. Due to opposition from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the bill was amended to now only affect former military vehicles. 

Several pro-hobby provisions of the bill with application to all hobby vehicles were eliminated. While the amended bill does not solve the many problems associated with registering a hobby car in Wisconsin, it does provide incremental improvement to the rules governing former military vehicles and is still worthy of our support.
