IL Proposed Legislation

Legislation Legislator Seeks to Declare All Inoperable Vehicles Junk Another day, another Inoperable Vehicle law. Rep. Dan Brady's bill would strike out a single line in the Illinois
Counties Code, Section 5-12002--one which exempts cars more than 25 years old from the junk vehicles law. HB0025 has been floating around the Illinois legislature for almost a year and was still in the rules committee when the legislature adjourned. However, it is still live and may yet see action for the 2006 session. Currently, the statute reads: "The county board may by ordinance declare all inoperable motor vehicles, whether on public or private property, to be a nuisance and authorize fines to be levied for the failure of any person to obey a notice received from the county which states that such person is to dispose of any inoperable motor under his or her control. However, nothing in this Section shall apply to any motor vehicle that is kept within a building when not in use, to historic vehicles over 25 years of age, or to a motor vehicle on the premises of a place of business engaged in the wrecking or junking of motor vehicles." The revised text would strike out the phrase "to historic vehicles over 25 years of age." We agree that some distinction between a junkyard and hobbyist is legitimate, but this isn't it. The six-month window granted by this law doesn't even cover one Midwestern winter. - By David B.
