We are working to keep the DOT from using existing Wisconsin law to ban HMVs
Paul Underwood who is advocating for unrestricted use of any military vehicle for any purpose at anytime by anyone
The assembly bill that we crafted in cooperation with input from collectors, legislators, lawyers and the DOT
There are a number of provisions in the bill that will make it easier to register former military vehicles.
The competing Senate bill by Senator Erpenbach is well meaning, but was not prepared with input from HMV collectors and does not address the entire range of issues for collectors.
If Paul Underwood can get less driving restrictions amended into the bill, great

I go back to my original point in the first thread--if the Pinz's are the issue then we need to separate them from the bill and handle them in a different way. There are a handful of Pinz's in WI but a lot of MBs, Dodges and other US made vehicles which shouldn't be lumped into the foreign made equation and deserve to be separated from the fray surrounding foreign made MVs.
If we have to sacrifice all MVs for the sake of protecting the rights of a few foreign made ones then I'm not on board. The weakness in the case is TWO groups trying to pass two different bills and also trying to push the DMV to accept ALL MVs including foreign ones which were not built to US standards. If we can get acceptance for the majority then THAT should be the priority . . .
I think part of the problem here is the pi$$ing match which has erupted around the Pinz's and we need to make sure this doesn't rob the majority of their rights to owning US-made MVs. They are, after all, the true historic MVs to our country and that's a lot easier to sell to the DMV than a vehicle which has little if any historic significance in our country. Once again, let's separate the issues in order to better work with the DMV and retain the majority's rights.
