Legislation (S.B. 158) has been introduced in Wyoming to exempt motor vehicle owners from the requirement that they affix a front license plate to their vehicles. Under the bill, an application must be filed and an exemption granted by the county treasurer after a fee of $100.00 was received for deposit into the highway fund. A front plate exemption sticker would be displayed in the front windshield of the vehicle for which the exemption was granted. While we believe the exemption fee is excessive given that the state will save money by issuing the single plate, we still believe the bill deserves the support of those who would choose to benefit. The bill will be considered in committee on Monday, January 28, 2013.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the Senate Committee on Transportation, Highways & Military Affairs (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 158
S.B. 158 would bring Wyoming in line with other states that have moved to a single plate option or requirement.
- S.B. 158 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on fabricated and some original bumpers, etc.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Senate Committee on Transportation, Highways & Military Affairs immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 158.
