SEMA eNews, Vol. 10, No. 6 - February 14, 2007

BACKYARD VEHICLE RESTORATION JOBS AGAIN UNDER SIEGE IN WEST VIRGINIA
Fines, community service and jail among possible misdemeanor offenses.

A bill has been reintroduced in the West Virginia State Legislature that would further restrict the ability of West Virginia vehicle hobbyists from maintaining inoperable vehicles on private property.  The legislation seeks to redefine “abandoned motor vehicles” to include vehicles or vehicle parts which are either unlicensed or inoperable, or both, are not in an enclosed building and have remained on private property for more than 30 days. Under current law, the abandoned vehicle law applies primarily to vehicles on public property. The bill would make violations a misdemeanor offense punishable by substantial fines, community service and jail. SEMA is opposing the bill as it 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. For more information www.semasan.com/main/main.aspx?id=62211. For details, contact Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.

While formed in the spirit of clean-up (I do believe) there needs to be more criteria for evaluating whether a person is maintaining vehicles for future use or just creating there own junkyard.

Here is the link to the SEMAsan web page.

It looks like this bill died before it even got any steam behind it.
