The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


        Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:
        Chapter 90B of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 22 the following section:-
        Section 22A. A state resident or non-resident who owns a vintage snow vehicle may register the snow vehicle pursuant to section 22 as a vintage snow vehicle upon making proper application and paying the registration fee to the director. A snow vehicle shall, at the time of registration, meet the sound and emission specifications in effect at the time the snow vehicle was manufactured.  For the purposes of this section, a vintage snow vehicle shall be a snow vehicle that is more than 25 years old and that is substantially maintained in original or restored condition.
        A vintage snow vehicle registration issued by the director for a snow vehicle shall authorize the vehicle to be operated only for the purpose of traveling to, returning from and participating in an exhibition, parade or other public event of interest and for occasional personal use. 
        Notwithstanding said section 22, the registration fee for each vintage snow vehicle shall be determined annually by the secretary of administration and finance as provided in section 3B of chapter 7; provided, however, that the registration shall be valid until the ownership of the vintage snow vehicle is transferred to another person. Upon the transfer of ownership, a new owner may register the snow vehicle as a vintage snow vehicle upon making proper application and paying the vintage snow vehicle registration fee.
