Thumbs up Pro-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Reintroduced in Washington State

http://www.semasan.com/main/main.aspx?id=62875

SEMA model legislation (S.B. 5586) has been reintroduced in the Washington State Legislature by Senator Mike Carrell ([email protected]). S.B. 5586 would prohibit cities or towns from enforcing an ordinance, development regulation, zoning regulation, or administrative practice that prevents automobile collectors from pursuing their hobby. Junked, wrecked or inoperable vehicles, including parts cars, stored on private property would only require screening from public view if required by local law. The bill is pending consideration by the Washington Senate Government Operations, Tribal Relations and Elections Committee.

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Government Operations, Tribal Relations and Elections Committee (List Attached Below) Immediately to Request Their Support for S.B. 5586

• S.B. 5586 would permit the repair or modification of motor vehicles on private property that are undergoing restoration.

• S.B. 5586 would permit the maintenance of parts cars as a source of parts for motor vehicles undergoing restoration.

• S.B. 5586 provides safeguards for hobbyists to work on collector vehicles on private property.

• S.B. 5586 establishes reasonable provisions that vehicles be located out of public view by means of suitable fencing, vegetation or other means.

• S.B. 5586 demonstrates a real effort by legislators and hobbyists to enact reasonable and fair compromise legislation.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Senate Government Operations, Tribal Relations and Elections Committee to request their support for S.B. 5586. Thank you for your assistance.

Please e-mail a copy of your letters to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby!

I'm tired of posting the text of entire new laws for you, but if you actually read the text of 5586 here: http://e-lobbyist.com/gaits/text/189865/189865.pdf, you'll see that it doesn't actually do a number of the things you mentioned.

The "reasonable provisions" you discuss are not listed, including non-listed items such as fencing, vegetation, or other means.

Also, among other things, the bill does not protect "junked, wrecked, or inoperative vehicles" as you mention; rather it protects "hobby vehicle restoration" on cars that are 30 years old or older.
------
If you're going to spam the forum, at least get the facts straight.

ETA: It looks like the original bill as proposed may have had some of your items listed, but was changed dramatically in later sessions. This is when actually posting facts would come in handy.
