URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Missouri Bills to Provide for Single License Plate Die as Legislature Adjourns
Legislation (H.B. 371) to require the issuance of only a single license plate died when the legislature adjourned for the year. Separate legislation (S.B. 36) to allow motor vehicle owners to petition the Director of Revenue for approval to only fasten a license plate on the rear of the vehicle also died. Both bills would have saved money, conserved resources and brought Missouri in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement. Further, the bills would have helped protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieved vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on fabricated and some original bumpers, etc.
Thank you to those who participated in supporting these bills.
