You may use the following points in your message:

  • S.B. 1282 would save money, conserve resources and bring Idaho in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
  • S.B. 1282 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.  

Overview: Legislation (S.B. 1228) to require the issuance of only a single license plate for all motor vehicles was defeated in the Senate Transportation Committee on a 4-4 vote.  The bill was opposed by the law enforcement community.  However, a bill (S.B. 1282) to allow for a single plate for motor vehicles that were not originally equipped with a display bracket on the front of the vehicle was introduced.  S.B. 1282 requires that the single registration plate be attached on the rear of the vehicle.
