Wisconsin Bill Introduced to Allow Hobbyists to Purchase Salvage Vehicles at Auction

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation (S.B. 647) has been introduced in the Wisconsin Senate to eliminate the requirement of buyer identification cards to purchase vehicles from the salvage vehicle pool. Currently, only dealers may purchase scrappage vehicles at auction. This bill would eliminate that requirement and allow individuals the opportunity to purchases salvage vehicles. In exchange, salvage vehicle dealers would be required to keep records of each vehicle sold from the pool.
