The replica manufacturers are cautious about the additional regulatory oversight and obligations that act can bring to their door steps. They may have a cool reception for it.

It's not cool, not even icy or dry ice, more like liquid nitrogen.

Warranties, regulations, all that stuff. Right now build a roller or a kit, put a stamp on it to send it to someone, and pretty much forget about it. Sell a car and it becomes a recordkeeping nightmare - you literally have to know the origin of every nut and bolt in every vehicle - but now have to keep warranty reserves and all the other stuff. (Warranty isn't required by the reg, but is by the consumer paying full price for an off-the-showroom-floor vehicle).

I wrote about it in another topic...

You're spot on Tony! The overreach that regulatory oversight brings to the table is sad ...

Received some initial feedback from one of the Middletown senators. Let's continue to get the word out there!

Thank you for reaching out to Senator Mary Daugherty Abrams office, we have received your message in regards to proposed bill no. 159. Currently, this bill has been referred to the transportation committee, which Senator Abrams sits on. However, this bill has not been debated or discussed for final language, therefore it is difficult for Senator Abrams to speak on it at this moment in time. Nonetheless, once this bill has been written for final language Senator Abrams will take your advocacy and thoughts into consideration when voting.

The advocacy and thoughts need to be taken into consideration before the bill has been written for final language. Once written for final language it is not likely to get modified based on your advocacy.

If it is modified at all, it will be modified in some sort of unholy horse trading in a smoke filled back room deal that has nothing to do with your advocacy and everything to do with what the Senator is trying to get done somewhere else. The changes will also not be in your best interests — guaranteed!

The time for advocacy and dialog is prior to the bill having been written for final language. Your representative's response is just another example of the let them eat cake mentality of our elected representatives.

BTW did you ever think about who influences and writes the "final language". I think you would be chagrinned ...

I jumped on https://www.semasan.com/legislation to see if the bill was officially picked up by SEMA Action Network, and now looks like there are 6 total active bills, including Bill 159, in CT. I would expect SEMA to be sending an alert shortly.

Minor update to share regarding the Connecticut Council of Car Clubs. I reached out them in the past when my assessment issues first occurred, and also when this bill was proposed.

While grabbing their web address for this post, I noticed they've picked up on the bill and posted it on their website. I need to read their write up in detail, but suggest if CT (or any owners) have input, please contact John via the email address noted in the write up.

Maybe the CT owners should join their next council meeting.

Not much of an update or progress to share. The proposed bill still sits with the transportation committee, since January 15th.

I did reach out to CTCCC, who expressed some reluctancy in supporting the proposal, at least based on how it was initially drafted. Unclear if they are willing to engage to propose / modify to still meet the need of our community.

CT members are probably aware there's a separate proposal regarding the elimination of the vehicle property tax in CT. At the high level, this sounds good, but not sure if we're just gonna get screwed through our real estate tax or what. I haven't had a chance to review in detail.

Here's a link to their website, https://www.ctccc.net. On the homepage, there is a summary of both these proposals, and additional information in the newsletter links.
