METHODOLOGY:

This bill would exempt vehicles that are 20 years or older from title requirements. The Department of Safety states it would incur costs related to system programming and testing and would require the updating of training materials and the notification of staff, municipal agents, and licensed NH retail dealers. The Department states the estimated cost for system change, testing, and implementation, is approximately $24,000 (160 hours of work at a rate of $150 per hour, presumed to be incurred in FY 2025), and states the cost associated with training and educating agents and stakeholders would be absorbed within its current budget.
