Ohio Legislation to Restore Front-End Vehicle License Plate Advances
COLUMBUS, OHIO — An Ohio Senate committee on March 8, restored the two-license plate requirement for vehicles at the urging of law enforcement, primarily the Ohio Highway Patrol which for years has fought the one-plate concept, according to the Ohio Vehicle Leasing Association.
The full 33-member Senate was slated to vote on the bill on March 9. If the state Senate OKs the bill as recommended by its committee, the House would be asked to agree with the Senate. If the House rejects the Senate version, a committee would be named to work out differences.
An Ohio House of Representatives committee had inserted language in HB 68 to require only one plate for the same price as a means reducing expense before the bill was approved March 2 and sent onto the Senate.
