Pro Hobbyist Legislation In Olympia

Pro-Hobbyist Inoperable Vehicle Bill Reintroduced in Washington State

A version of SEMA model legislation (S.B. 5246) has been reintroduced in the Washington State Legislature by Senator Mike Carrell ( S.B. 5246 would prohibit cities or towns from enforcing an ordinance, development regulation, zoning regulation, or administrative practice that prevents automobile collectors from pursuing their hobby.
