The one time registration bill for NY was my bill. I served in the NYS Assembly. The state DMV did not want to do this so it went no wheres along with my bill for NY to offer titles for vehicles prior to 1973. I tried and was proud to do so . I was Chair of the SEMA state legislators caucus for 6 years.
