Ohio bill would require 1 license plate, not 2

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Motorists would only be required to display a single license plate on the rear of their vehicles under a proposal pending in the Ohio House.

But The Columbus Dispatch reports that at the same time, a joint House-Senate task force unanimously has recommended against the change to one plate from two.

Rep. Cheryl Grossman of Grove City is the chairwoman of the License Plate Safety Task Force. She said the panel heard no testimony in favor of the switch, while the insurance industry, school-bus drivers and the State Highway Patrol along with other law enforcement offices wanted to keep both plates.

The bill to require one plate has been passed by a House committee. It could save the state about $1.4 million each year in production and distribution costs.
