    @TechnoWeenie Well, that just gives us another avenue of attack if the MSP balks at eliminating the rest of the memo. We have an actual copy of MIL-STD-1108B. Can you provide a source for the text of the Federal exemption? The only reason @Jeff MD has made the progress he has, is because I was...

    @Jeff MD Wait, so you actually got a delegate to speak to the MVA and the MSP about this? That's fantastic. Delegate Hornberger was definitely pissed when I showed him the original memo but he seemed intent on pushing forward with his bill rather than telling MSP to knock it off with the bogus...

    This is exactly what I wanted to happen. How in the world did you convince them? I never called them directly because I was certain that they'd blow me off.

    On top of this information, we use MIL-STD-1108B which is essentially the military version of the FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) to prove that former military vehicles are indeed built with public road travel in mind. I feel that with the right documentation and the right people...

    I have just received an email from one of the sponsoring delegates' offices. They are overloaded with other legislation and will not be able to reintroduce the bill this year. They hope do try again next year. Here's my personal take on this: Laws tell you what you are NOT allowed to do, not...

    The MVA clerks don't really know about the ASED bulletin and they don't care. It's a case of 2 agencies not communicating.

    I think he's saying the memo is full of misinformation, not you.

    All Military Vehicles banned from road in Maryland

    I have not contacted ASED directly because I don't wish to draw attention to myself and risk having something stupid happen like having my title revoked (even though I'm in full compliance with Maryland law.) Just a couple of weeks ago, I was given the contact info of a retired trooper who...

    Lol, I joke that Trump was building the wall on the wrong border.

    Hang on, you can still get historic tags for an M35, no problem. It's when you need a safety inspection on a HMMWV or MTVR that's less than 20 years old that you run into problems. I have an M813 5 ton, got historic tags with no problem.

    @Blaze Ok, now that I've gotten the snark out of my system, I have just emailed the sponsoring Delegates and inquired on the status of the bill and whether it will be reintroduced. Failing this, I am considering consulting with an attorney as to whether it is possible to blunt "legislation by...

    Unfortunately, no. The MGA (Maryland General Assembly) is preoccupied with more important matters such as taxing us all to death and circumventing our rights.

    Legislative efforts have been suspended while the gov't is out of session for the pandemic. This is pretty much the status of all MV legislative efforts, nationwide.

    Here's the latest update: The bill sponsors have accepted our amendments and are working to incorporate them into the bill. We're giving them a day or so to do this and then we'll download and review the amended version. Fingers crossed that they apply our amendments correctly and we don't...

    As I understand it, HB-1148 will be submitted to the Maryland General Assembly on February 26th (9 days from today). I'm hoping @TMOMW will come through with some well written amendments to the bill. I have never done anything like this and I'm drinking from a fire hose, trying to learn the...

    ...and a little more: I have taken the step of calling the sponsoring delegates' offices and speaking to their staff. When I pointed out some of the accidental consequences of the bill as written, they were very supportive of including amendments to the bill that will make it better. My...

    I have just emailed the sponsors of the bill, calmly and politely pointing out some of the negative impacts, as written. I've CC'd TMOMW on the email so that he can follow what I'm doing and make sure I don't screw it up. I urge other Marylanders to do the same. Please POLITELY write these...

    More information: Based on the SEMA link above, it seems that SEMA may have had a hand in writing this bill, thinking that they were helping FMV owners in Maryland. The actual Maryland legislative information on the bill is here: https://legiscan.com/MD/bill/HB1148/2020 The sponsors are [R]...
