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

SEMA-supported legislation 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, from April 1 through October 31, has been approved by the Illinois House Transportation Committee. Under the bill, expanded-use antiques are limited to traveling to and from car shows, exhibitions, servicing or demonstration during the colder months, from November 1 through March 31. Regular antique-vehicle registration would still be available for a lower fee to hobbyists who would prefer operating their vehicle on a limited-use-only basis year-round. The bill will next be considered by the full Illinois House of Representatives.
