New Ga Taxation on Pre-1986 vehicles - petition action

Here is a notice that I got from the Triumph club on new proposed taxation - pass along

H. B. 80 is unfair taxation that will increase the annual ad valorem tax on pre-1986 vehicles. Many owners are car enthusiasts, often retirees on fixed incomes, with old hobby cars that are mostly driven to car shows or club events, so have little impact on traffic or wear and tear of roads. This proposed ad valorem tax increase is ONLY to Raise Money, not to cover any state costs, and it will affect many people who can least afford the increase. Tell the House Ways and Means Committee to STOP this bill!

So I created a petition to Rep. Alan Powell (GA-29), Rep. Don Parsons (GA-42), Rep. Sharon Beasley-Teague (GA-65), Rep. Mickey Channell (GA-116), Rep. Ben Harbin (GA-118), Rep. Tom Rice (GA-51), Rep. Chuck Sims (GA-169), Rep. Penny Houston (GA-170), Rep. Ron Stephens (GA-164), Rep. Wendell Willard (GA-49), Rep. Ellis Black (GA-174), Rep. Larry O'Neal (GA-146), Rep. Chuck Martin (GA-47), Rep. Mickey Stephens (GA-161), Rep. Virgil Fludd (GA-66), Rep. Howard Mosby (GA-90), Rep. Terry England (GA-108), Rep. Bob Bryant (GA-160), Rep. Willie Talton (GA-145), Rep. David Knight (GA-126), Rep. Stacey Abrams (GA-84), Rep. Allen Peake (GA-137), Rep. Matt Ramsey (GA-72), Rep. Paul Battles (GA-15), Rep. Lynne Riley (GA-50), Rep. B.J. Pak (GA-102), Rep. Brett Harrell (GA-106), Rep. Bruce Williamson (GA-111), and Rep. John Carson (GA-43), which says:

H.B. 80 is a BAD BILL that raises annual ad valorem taxes on folks owning older cars, often retirees on fixed income. Stop H.B. 80 from unfairly raising taxes!

It has passed the house and has been sent to the Senate for their process

Here is the part for classic car owners - it is much less than a new car and it appears to happen once instead of yearly like it is now.

Any person who purchases a 1963 through 1985 model year motor vehicle for which such person obtains a title shall be subject to this Code section, but the state title ad valorem tax fee shall be in an amount equal to .50 percent of the fair market value of such motor vehicle, and the local title ad valorem tax fee shall be in an amount equal to .50 percent of the fair market value of such motor vehicle.

I think it will pass since it brings in big money in the rest of the bill

This makes no sense as the State does not issue new titles for older cars. Am I missing something?
