    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.

    My former club in Colorado fought for years to get the law passed. Now with another stroke of a pen its going away. And to accomplish what? Make the roads and highways safer? Sure, make it easy to legally smoke pot, then motor vehicle accidents increase but, hey, lets further legislate all those ugly, menacing looking FMVs on the road.

    Somewhere we had another thread going on this topic a while back. Here's my take on this new legislation.It all started with a farm implement company in SE Colorado that buys / sells surplus military vehicles for agricultural usage and modifications to them for that purpose. The bill defines surplus military vehicles as off-highway vehicles for the purposes of titling these vehicles and of using these vehicles off road. These changes in the definition do the following:

    • A surplus military vehicle may be titled as an off-highway vehicle;
    • A surplus military vehicle is not registered as a motor vehicle;
    • A surplus military vehicle is treated as an off-highway vehicle for the purposes of on-road use and off-road use.

    These changes do not apply to military vehicles that are valued for historical purposes. Those that are maintained, marked as previously used by the military and privately owned and maintained for their historical value can still be titled, licensed and driven on public streets in Colorado and you don't have to bolt license plates on them as it distracts from their military appearance.

    Two separate categories of vehicles; historical ans street legal, off road and agricultural use. I guess some folks can find themselves in no-mans land where they have a truck that is no longer really looking marked or maintained in military appearance and maybe the state could balk at allowing a zombie apocalypse truck to have license plates, you never know about these rumors.
