SEMA-opposed legislation (H.B. 2373/S.B. 6156) in Washington that would have significantly restricted eligibility of collector vehicles and horseless carriages failed to pass as the legislature adjourned for the year.

Under existing law, a collector vehicle must be at least 30 years old, while a horseless carriage must be at least 40 years old. If passed, collector vehicles would have been required to be at least 40 years old, while horseless carriages would have been defined as being manufactured prior to 1916. The bill would also have restricted the issuance of year of manufacture plates and considerably increased registration fees.
