You may use the following points in your message:
- H.B. 266 would require the state to issue waivers for vehicles unable to display a front license plate.
- H.B. 266 would protect the aesthetic contours of vehicles and relieve the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers.
- H.B. 266 would accommodate additional classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.
- H.B. 266 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. 266) has been introduced in Montana to mandate that the state issue waivers for vehicles unable to display a front license plate. Current law only permits the display of a single rear-mounted plate for motor vehicles registered as a street rod or custom vehicle, and a waiver may be issued for vehicles unable to display a front plate. This bill would require the waiver to be issued. The bill passed the Senate Highways and Transportation Committee and awaits consideration by the full Senate.
