Michigan Bill to Expand Use of Historic Vehicles Approved by Senate

SEMA-supported legislation (S.B. 1146) that would amend the state’s current law governing historic motor vehicles to permit their unlimited use as “exhibition” vehicles the entire month of August each year was passed by the Michigan State Senate. Under current state law, use of historic vehicles is limited to participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and similar uses, including mechanical testing, but not for general transportation. The bill now moves to the Michigan House of Representatives where it has yet to be assigned to committee.
