Identical but separate legislation (H.B. 977/S.B. 39) to require the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) to provide, for one year, a specially designed vintage reproduction registration plate to qualifying vehicle owners was approved by the Maryland Senate and House. To fulfill procedural requirements, each bill must now be passed by the other chamber. Under the bills, to be eligible to receive a vintage reproduction registration plate, the vehicle must be a Class A (passenger), Class E (small truck), Class L (historic), Class M (multipurpose), or Class N (street rod) vehicle. The vintage reproduction plate would be designed to resemble the 1910 Maryland registration plate, which has black lettering on a yellow background. The bill requires MVA to set initial registration and renewal fees. The Senate bill (S.B. 39) will be considered by the House Environmental Matters Committee on Friday, March 29.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Environmental Matters Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 39
- S.B. 39 would bring a retro look to modern license plates by allowing consumers to use the reproduction 1910 plates.
- S.B. 39 would give consumers a new option on the license plates to use on their vehicles and provide historic car owners a voluntary means to acquire new plates that match the vintage look of their vehicles.
- S.B. 39 estimates that the additional cost to obtain the plates would be $20 and would take effect January 1, 2014.
