Without having been given committee consideration, legislation (S.B. 2724) to provide that antique vehicles and expanded-use antique vehicles are required to display registration plates only on the rear of the vehicle died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill also allowed expanded-use antique vehicles to be operated year round with no restriction on destination or purpose.
Under current law, expanded-use antique vehicles can be only driven without limitation during the warmer part of the year (April 1 through October 31). They are limited to traveling to and from car shows, exhibitions, servicing or demonstration during the colder months (November 1 through March 31). Under the bill, the expanded-use antique registration plate would have been available at an annual fee of $45.
