Bill to Limit Specialty License Plates Moves Forward

Posted By on Fri, Feb 3, 2012 at 3:15 PM

The Idaho Senate voted 31-2 today to approve a bill that would limit the proliferation of new specialty license plates. Sen. James Hammond, Republican from Coeur d'Alene, is promoting the bill, which would require organizations to sell at least 1,000 plates in three years.

The House voted last year 21-47 against a similar bill, instead creating two new specialty plates in the same session.

Idaho is home to 39 different specialty plates, from freemasons to mountain bikes to the baked potato plate. Sen. Hammond's bill would eliminate existing, unsuccessful plates as citizens choose not to renew them.

The bill now moves to the House.
