DON’T DELAY!  Please contact the members of the House Finance Committee immediately to request support for H.B. 166:

You may use the following points in your message:

  • H.B. 166 would save money, conserve resources, and bring the state in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
  • H.B. 166 would protect the aesthetic contours of cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers.
  • H.B. 166 would accommodate classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.
  • H.B. 166 would allow greater performance and styling equipment options for automotive enthusiasts in the state and the industry supporting their hobby.

Overview: SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 166) has been introduced in Alaska to allow the display of only a single, rear-mounted license plate for all passenger vehicles. Under current law vehicles must display two license plates. The bill passed the House Transportation Committee and awaits consideration by the House Finance Committee.
