Texas Legislature Adjourns Without Completing Action on Car Hobby Legislation

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

Pro-hobby legislation to allow a single license plate for attachment at the rear of the vehicle and a separate bill to increase the emissions inspection period from an annual requirement to every five years died when the legislature adjourned for the year. SEMA-opposed legislation to impose on state motorists a vehicle miles traveled tax of up to 1.25 cents per mile and a bill to add an additional fee of $50 to vehicle registration and renewal fees also died.
