A version of SEMA-model legislation to ease the process by which replica cars are titled and registered was approved by the House Transportation and Public Works Committee. The bill next moves to the full House of Representatives for a vote by all members. The measure defines "replica car" as a motor vehicle that is assembled from a pre-fabricated chassis and body kit purchased from a replica car manufacturer and provides that the model year is the year of the model or brand that a replica car most resembles. The bill, if enacted into law, would become effective July 1, 2015.
