Connecticut Bill Amended to Continue to Allow Year-of-Manufacture License Plates

With opposition from the SEMA Action Network (SAN), legislation (H.B. 6495) that threatened to disallow the use of year-of-manufacture license plates in Connecticut after July 1, 2013 was amended in committee to continue to allow use of these plates.  Under the original bill, the owner of an antique, rare or special interest motor vehicle who was authorized to display a year of manufacture plate could continue to display the plate until the registration period expires.  However, upon renewal of registration, the owner would have been required to display a current registration plate. 

Thank you and congratulations to all who participated in opposing this bill.
