Pro-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Reintroduced in Washington State

A version of SEMA-model legislation has been reintroduced in the Washington State Senate to prohibit cities or towns from enforcing an ordinance, development regulation, zoning regulation or administrative practice that prevents automobile collectors from pursuing their hobby. Junked, wrecked or inoperable vehicles stored on private property would only require screening from public view. Under the bill, six or fewer vehicles that are 30 years old or older, including one parts car, would be permitted for hobby vehicle restoration as long as restoration is an ancillary use of the property.
