    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Ahab, You are absolutely correct, I have met with my two legislators and they were surprised at the information I gave them, they had a different impression of the whole thing. Both are supporters now and it only took about 15 minutes in person. If anyone can make a visit in person that would...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Thank you Rodent Yes this does mean all Military Vehicles. You and I recognize that an M1008 and a K5 are the same, but the folks preaching off-road only don't. It is up to those of us that understand these vehicles to write our legislators and clarify this. Please write your legislator find...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    UPDATE ON DONATIONS - I have to apologize to Reworked LMTV, I didn't understand what he meant when he posted that the donations go to covering the cost of getting the petition to more people. I worked through Change.org's help desk and that is exactly what the donations go to. These donations...

    I wish we could get AAMVA to change their position on this, that is where the bad information and advise is coming from.

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I like it... I might have to wash the truck, that always makes it snow. As one of the signers of the petition said "Retired military vehicles have many uses after war, just like our Vets!"

    Reworked LMTV - So true, I see this with so many things military related, people that don't know about it get scared by it.

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    As far as I can tell after 21 days the funds, less a fee from change.org and their biller, will go to the owner of the petition. I can for a fee ($20 was the first increment that I saw) send the petition out through change.org's advertisers. At this point if you give $10 about $8.90 will go to...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Ahab - Thanks for asking about out of state signatures, we had a few petitions in Colorado get rejected for that very reason. This petition is to show general support, not for a candidate, statewide initiative, recall, or referendum. This means that the more signatures the better, and they can...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Thank you to all who have signed!! The petition is just fine with out of sate signatures, this will not be to get something added to a ballot so it is ok. As for the donations, I didn't know this was even an option, I'm trying to see where this money is going so for now please don't donate as...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Ahab, Unfortunately no, I have not heard from any SS members since posting my plea for help. I have been talking to representatives and they would like to introduce a bill to support us but that would not be until the next session in the spring. I would hope that this legislation would be...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I think a petition and letters both sound promising. I'm still looking for someone to organize us, any volunteers? I did hear from Phil and he does have a meeting with the DOR (they are over the DMV) to see if we can get them to follow the law as passed. I think that there still needs to be...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Senator Crowder (original bill sponsor) just responded as well, looks like they are going to look at a new bill for the upcoming session, that means that we have to wait until late January to even get an idea of what might happen, but it is still something. Keep pulling on their ear folks...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Representative Don Valdez (https://leg.colorado.gov/legislators/donald-valdez ) did just reply that he will look into it and see if there is any legislation that he can move forward. For those of you writing letters, here is the first person that has said that he will take action, write him a...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    Still not much of an update, the MVCC (Phil Movish) has been trying to get someone at the Department of Revenue or DMV to hear his plea and allow titles to be issued. Senator Crowder (author of the bill) has not seamed particularly interested in helping us. the other Senators and Representatives...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I have not heard anything, so far my letters to senators and Representative have been met with the standard "we have recorded your opposition to the law" kind of comment, or the comment that these vehicles should have never been issued on-road titles (We all know that varies on a case by case...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I too hope that the discussions are inclusive of all MV's, I would love to help and am struggling to find constructive efforts to focus my energies on. From listening to the comments from the hearings, the opponents to the MV's are largely concerned about opinions issued by various regulatory...

    undysworld, Thanks for the advice, i had not even thought about other auto collectors but the same rationale the state applied here would ban those vehicles from the road as well, thank you. Tommys2patrick - Start with your local senators and representatives they can be found here -...

    Colorado Bill SB19-054 RE: (Former) Military Vehicle Motor Vehicle Regulation

    I've started sending letters to all that I can, although, I did that while the bill was being debated and perverted into what it is now and it did not have an effect. What else can we do? Does anyone know how the efforts in other states have gone and what was most effective?
