Anti-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Approved by Arkansas House, Sent to Senate

SEMA is opposing legislation that would allow cities to remove inoperable vehicles from private property if the vehicle is deemed a “nuisance” under a local ordinance. The bill was approved by the Arkansas House of Representatives and will now be considered by the Senate Committee on City, County and Local Affairs. Among other things, the measure provides no reasonable safeguards for legitimate automotive hobbyists who choose to work on inoperable collector vehicles on private property and establishes no provisions that would enable vehicles located out of public view to avoid being classified as abandoned.
