Washington State Enacts SEMA Street Rod/Custom Vehicle Bill Into Law

Washington joined the
growing list of states to enact SEMA model legislation to amend the vehicle
titling and registration classification for street rods and create a
classification for custom vehicles.. The bill was approved by the Washington
State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christine Gregoire. 
Under the new law, a street rod is defined as an altered vehicle manufactured
before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 30 years old and
manufactured after 1948.  Importantly, kit cars and replica vehicles will
be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as
the production vehicle they most closely resemble. 

President Signs 1099 Repeal Into Law

After Congress acted last week to repeal the costly 1099 reporting
requirement included in last year's health care law, President Obama
today signed the legislation into law.  SEMA congratulates Congress and
the President for acting to eliminate this burdensome requirement.
Through this bipartisan agreement, small business owners can continue
to focus on economic growth and revitalization.
