Several bills introduced in West Virginia in 2018 failed to be enacted into law before the legislature adjourned for the session.
Several bills introduced in West Virginia in 2018 failed to be enacted into law before the legislature adjourned for the session. This includes legislation to empower three or more contiguous counties to form regional recreation authorities to establish new recreational trail systems and recreation management programs tailored to the needs of their communities. Another bill that died would have established a separate West Virginia state trail authority.
Legislation to provide for special collector vehicle license plates was approved by the House Roads and Transportation Committee but went no further. Another bill that died would have provided military vehicles an exemption from displaying license plates. It would have created an alternative registration insignia more compatible with the vehicle’s traditional military markings.
Legislation also died that would have exempted a reconstructed vehicle from inspection when being titled/registered if no structural parts had been replaced on the vehicle. A different bill died that would have created a special registration plate giving full-size special-purpose off-road vehicles, self-assembled, or modified original-equipment manufactured vehicles access to roads used by all-terrain vehicles. Finally, a bill to give a property tax exemption to all motor vehicle owners failed.
