Montana Bill to Provide for Single Year-of-Manufacture License Plate Approved by Senate; Moves to Governor

Legislation (H.B. 270) to allow the owner of a motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer or pole trailer manufactured in the year 1948, 1949 or 1950 to display a single original Montana license plate that is affixed to the rear of the vehicle was approved by the Montana Senate.  Having already been approved by the House, the bill will now be sent to the governor for his signature and enactment into law.  Under the bill, the original Montana license plate must be legible and must bear the year that matches the year in which the vehicle was manufactured.     

We Urge You to Contact Montana Governor Steve Bullock (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 270

  • H.B. 270 would reinstate the single plate requirement that existed for motor vehicles in 1948 – 1950. 
  • H.B. 270 would protect the aesthetic contours of these model year collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on fabricated bumpers, etc.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact Governor Steve Bullock immediately by phone, fax or e-mail to request his support for H.B. 270.  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.
