House bill 79 needs our support (in GA)

Post  Hobug on Thu 22 Jan 2009, 11:41 pm

I got an email informing me about HB 79. House bill 79 has been introduced to make all cars 25 years and older able to run year of manufacture tags. It is also designed to remove some of the contradictions in the current law. Here is the site to view the bill. www.legis.ga.gov We need to write and call to support this bill and get it passed. This would make post 70 cars able to run old tags too.

I know most of you are only into pre 67s, but anything that furthers the support of the old car hobby is good for all of us.

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED

To amend Code Section 40-2-41.1 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to the display of authentic historical Georgia license plates, so as to increase the time period included in the definition of authentic historical Georgia license plates; to provide for related matters; to provide for an effective date; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA:

Code Section 40-2-41.1 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to the display of authentic historical Georgia license plates, is amended by revising subsections (a) and (b) as follows:
"(a) As used in this Code section, the term 'authentic historical Georgia license plate' means a license plate originally issued in the year 1970 or earlier 25 or more years ago and originally required to be displayed on motor vehicles operated upon the streets and highways of this state in the year 1970 or earlier 25 or more years ago pursuant to former motor vehicle registration laws of this state.
(b) The owner of any antique motor vehicle manufactured in 1970 or earlier 25 or more years ago shall be authorized to display in lieu of and in the same manner as the license plate otherwise required under Code Section 40-2-41 an authentic historical Georgia license plate which clearly represents the model year of any such antique motor vehicle, provided that the owner has properly registered such antique motor vehicle for the current year as otherwise required under this chapter and has obtained a current Georgia license plate or revalidation decal for such antique motor vehicle. Such currently valid Georgia license plate shall be kept in such antique motor vehicle at all times but need not be displayed in a manner to be visible from outside the vehicle."
