Backyard Vehicle Restoration Jobs Under Siege Again In Illinois; Harmful Inoperable Vehicle Bill to be Heard on March 6
A bill (H.B. 367) introduced in the Illinois House of Representatives that would further restrict the ability of Illinois vehicle hobbyists from maintaining inoperable vehicles on private property will be considered by the House Transportation and Motor Vehicles Committee on Tuesday, March 6.  H.B. 367 would redefine “inoperable motor vehicles” to include vehicles incapable of being lawfully driven on state highways in full accordance with Illinois vehicle laws.   The bill would also expand the definition of inoperable vehicles to include dismantled and unlicensed vehicles.   Under current law, localities may authorize fines and disposal of inoperable vehicles on public and private property.

Contact House Transportation and Motor Vehicles Committee Members (List Below) Immediately To Request Their Opposition to H.B. 367

For those interested in attending the hearing to show their opposition, the committee will meet on Tuesday, March 6 at the following address and time:

House Transportation and Motor Vehicles Committee Hearing - 2:00 p.m.
Capitol Building - Room 114 
Springfield, IL

H.B. 367 would give local authorities an inordinate amount of power in determining the disposition of inoperable historic project cars.


H.B. 367 would make it virtually impossible for Illinois hobbyists to maintain inoperable collector vehicles on private property.


H.B. 367 demonstrates a clear disregard and lack of understanding of the vehicle hobby and the rights of hobbyists.


H.B. 367 makes no legal distinction between an owner using private property as a dumping ground and a vehicle enthusiast working to maintain, restore or construct a vehicle.
DON'T DELAY! Please contact members of the Illinois House Transportation and Motor Vehicles Committee immediately by phone, fax or e-mail to request their opposition to H.B. 367. 

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to stevem@sema.org.  Thank you for your assistance.

Illinois Enthusiats Defeat Harmful Inoperable Vehicle Bill

With the adjournment of the Illinois Legislature, the SAN defeated legislation (H.B. 4256 and H.B. 25) that would have further restricted the ability of vehicle hobbyists to maintain inoperable vehicles on private property. H.B. 4256 threatened to redefine “inoperable motor vehicles” to include vehicles incapable of being driven under their own power for a period of 7 days. Under current law, these vehicles must be undriveable for a period of at least 6 months to be deemed inoperable and thus subject to disposal and fines by a county. H.B. 25 would have effectively required that all inoperable historic vehicles over 25-years of age be stored in a garage or risk a nuisance citation and possible disposal. It would have also removed historic vehicles over 25-years of age from a list of vehicles exempt from county inoperable vehicle ordinances if not kept within a building

Randy

Thanks for the update. 
I think this is coming back though.  In your post, they defeated HB 4256 and HB 25. 
In the one I posted, it is HB 367. 
I will research this via the state site to see if one was combined into those.

in your first post, it also says it will be heard on March 6th.....which leads me to believe we are talking about the same thing

Here is info from the State Legislature site.

Bill Status of HB0367  95th General Assembly

Short Description:  TOWNSHIPS-INOPERABLE VEHICLES

House Sponsors
Rep. Jack D. Franks - Michael Tryon

Last Action
Date Chamber  Action
  3/23/2007 House Rule 19(a) / Re-referred to Rules Committee

Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
 60 ILCS 1/30-130  


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Township Code. Changes the definition of inoperable vehicle to include certain motor vehicles that are incapable of being lawfully driven on the highway under their own motor power (now, includes certain motor vehicle that are incapable of being driven under their own motor power). Provides that the definition of inoperable vehicle includes abandoned, discarded, dismantled, and unlicensed vehicles. Effective immediately.

Actions
Date Chamber  Action
  1/23/2007 House Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Jack D. Franks
  1/26/2007 House First Reading
  1/26/2007 House Referred to Rules Committee
  1/31/2007 House Assigned to Executive Committee
  2/8/2007 House Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Michael Tryon
  2/28/2007 House Re-assigned to Transportation and Motor Vehicles Committee
 3/23/2007 House Rule 19(a) / Re-referred to Rules Committee

Also from their site, HB 25 deals with riverboat gambling, and I can not find HB 4256 for the current session.
4256 did die during the previous session though.
Last action on this was when it was sent back to the rules committee.

I would keep an eye on this one.
