Currently, vehicles that meet certain qualifications can be registered as an HMV for a one-time fee of $30--the special HMV plates never expire. However, use of HMV's is restricted to parades and show events. SB-520 loosens the use restrictions to include occasional personal use, club activities, exhibitions, and tours. Since this bill loosens restrictions, and a person could in all practicality get away with using an HMV as his primary vehicle (for a one time registration fee of $30!), this bill earns a score of MORE LIBERTY.
SB-520 is also cosponsored by Representatives Jacque, Bies, Brooks, Kerkman, Kestell, Nygren, Rivard and Wynn. It has been referred to the Committee on Transportation and Elections.
