Mo. House backs measure on new temporary plates

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri House has approved legislation that could change the kind of temporary license tags drivers get when they buy a vehicle.

Currently, when people purchase a vehicle, they receive a piece of paper with their temporary tag number written in marker, which they put in their back windshield. The House backed legislation Thursday that would allow drivers to get a tag with a printed number that goes in the same place as a permanent license plate.

Supporters of the bill say it will make tags harder to forge and will help law enforcement know more about a car when they make a traffic stop.

The measure now goes to the Senate.


License plate bill is HB1329
