Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 629 -- License Plates and Tabs

Sponsor:  Boucher

This bill requires license plates to be coated so as to allow
the background, letters, and numerals to reflect the light of
other vehicles.  Figures on plates for most vehicles must not be
less than 3 inches in height and the strokes not less than five--
sixteenths of an inch in width.  For motorcycles, the figures
must not be less than one inch in height and the strokes not
less than one-eight of an inch in width.

New plates, instead of tabs, will be issued annually for certain
apportioned vehicles, trailers, buses, dealers, and commercial
vehicles in excess of 12,000 pounds.

Beginning January 1, 2002, an alternative window tab design will
be available, at the option of the vehicle owner, for
noncommercial motor vehicles upon annual registration.  The
alternative tab will be required to be placed in the lower
corner on the driver's side of the windshield.  Whenever a
vehicle owner opts for a window tab, the Director of Revenue
will also issue a tab which reads "window tab" to be placed on
the license plate in the space designated for renewal tabs.  The
design and placement of tabs on all other vehicle categories
will remain the same.
