Pro-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Moves to Nevada Senate

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

Working with Nevada lawmakers, SEMA amended legislation that originally threatened to add abandoned, unregistered, inoperable or junk motor vehicles to the list of items that constitute a public nuisance. Under existing law, counties and cities may remove a public nuisance at the property owner’s expense if, after notice, the property owner does not remove the nuisance. Under the SEMA-drafted amendment, abandoned, inoperable or junk vehicles stored on private property would only require screening from public view. Unregistered vehicles could not be declared a nuisance under the SEMA amendment. After being approved by the Nevada State Assembly, the bill has now been sent to the Senate Government Affairs Committee for its consideration.
