Legislation to substantially increase the age requirement for vehicles eligible for registration as historic or special-interest vehicles was withdrawn by the sponsor.
   

After an outpouring of opposition statewide, legislation to substantially increase the age requirement for vehicles eligible for registration as historic or special-interest vehicles was withdrawn by the sponsor. Under the bill, the age requirement would have been raised from 25 to at least 45 years old. The bill also would have required that a historic vehicle owner have registered one or more vehicles used for daily transportation. The bill had been introduced and rushed through the committee process on a single day before being withdrawn from consideration on the House floor.
