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

    From the SEMA Action Network:

    COLORADO BILL TO ALLOW MILITARY VEHICLE TITLING UNFAVORABLY AMENDED




    Legislation (SB19-054) introduced to allow for the titling and registration of surplus military vehicles for on-road use has been unfavorably amended by the Colorado legislature. If passed in its current form, all surplus military vehicles would be limited to off-road use only. As a result of these amendments, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) is no longer able to support this legislation.

    It appears to be refining the definition of the terms "Historic Military Vehicle" and "Surplus Military Vehicle" as to the ability to legally operate it on Highway or restrict that vehicle to off highway use. It is confusing as it also has some sort of exemption for HMMWV. It appears to me that the Surplus type are those ex military vehicles that are modified from the original military use and design to something more custom for the end user. Things such as appearance, comfort, color, purpose, speed, road-ability, emissions, performance etc. For example, a vehicle that is modified for use in logging, mining, farming, recovery, construction etc is not Historical. While someone that keeps the vehicle looking and functioning the way the military had it is more "historical". It is rather challenging just finding all the cross references in such legislation and which original document is being proposed to change. definitely not making things easy to figure out.

    I just finished the title process for an M35A3 and was told at several steps along the way that these were going to be off-road only titles soon. I'll write letters to all I can think of, but this could be a killer for me.

    Perhaps I can get enough backing to have many of the current roads removed from the list of "roads"? Colorado would save money on maintenance and upkeep, and I could drive to a rally.

    Looks like it passed. The Bill says it takes effect June 1st 2019, anyone have an idea of how this will be implemented? I see two possible categories for our vehicles, Historical Military Vehicles and Surplus Military Vehicles. I'm not sure how they will dived the pack and if the historical class will have all the on-road privileges. Thoughts?

    Hopefully those already titled for on road will be grandfathered in.
