In a previous newsletter, Maryland’s history of license plates was detailed. Not mentioned in that edition was today’s general disdain for the requirement to display a front and rear plate. I’m not one to delve deeply into politics in a public forum - unless it involves automobiles. If you harbor hate for the second plate - even if your automobile doesn’t fit the narrowed focus of the legislation – review the following message from the SEMA Action Network and act if you so choose.

Maryland Bills to Provide for Single License Plate to be considered on February 5, 2015
Legislation (H.B. 61) has been reintroduced in the Maryland House of Delegates to require the issuance of only a single license plate for all motor vehicles. A second bill (H.B. 62) provides that historic vehicles and street rods may display only the rear plate if the front plate is stored inside the vehicle. Both bills will be considered by the House Environment and Transportation Committee on Thursday, February 5, 2015.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Environment and Transportation Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 61 and H.B. 62.
- H.B. 61 would save money, conserve resources and bring Maryland in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
- H.B. 62 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Maryland House Environment and Transportation Committee immediately by e-mail to request their support for H.B. 61 and H.B. 62.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.
