Current Bill Summary


SB 570 - Under this act, the state will only issue one license plate beginning August 28, 2012, to motorists unless the registered owner is eligible to receive a second plate (property-carrying commercial motor vehicle applicants can request 2 plates). Currently, property-carrying commercial motor vehicles are only issued one license plate. This act allows the owners of these vehicles to request and be issued two plates. The Director of the Department of Revenue may assess and collect an additional fee for the second plate (Sections 301.064, 301.120, 301.130 and 301.144).

The provisions contained in this act were contained in SB 324 (2011) and SS/SCS/HB 2111 (2010).
