Maryland legislation (H.B. 562) to require the issuance of a single motor vehicle license plate died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill, favored by state hobbyists, required that the single registration plate be attached on the front of tractors and on the rear of all other vehicles. A second bill (H.B. 577) to allow the front plate to be stored inside the vehicle if the vehicle was manufactured without a means to secure and display a front plate also died.
