Legislation (S.B. 3213) to provide that historical vehicle owners only pay a one-time registration fee of $100 upon initial registration was once again passed by the New York Senate, after having died last year. The bill has been referred to the Assembly Transportation Committee for consideration.

We Urge You to Contact Assembly Transportation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 3213

* The reduced registration fee would be available to owners of historical vehicles owned and operated as an exhibition piece or collector's item and used for club activities, exhibits, tours, parades, occasional transportation and similar uses.

* Under current New York law, a historical motor vehicle is either a vehicle manufactured more than 25 years ago or one which has unique characteristics and which is determined to be of historical, classic or exhibition value.

* The $100 one-time fee would replace the current annual fee of $28.75.

DON'T DELAY! Please contact members of the New York Assembly Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 3213. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
