PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For SB20-051

SENATE COMMITTEE ON TRANSPORTATION & ENERGY
Date Jan 28, 2020      
Location SCR 352



SB20-051 - Amended, referred to Senate Finance


03:51:25 PM  
Senator Priola introduced Senate Bill 20-051, concerning
license plates, and, specifying that, in order to minimize potential lost
registration revenue, the license plates of a motor vehicle that is classified
as Class C personal property expire upon the sale or transfer of the motor
vehicle and that, in order to improve legibility and enforcement, a revised
color scheme is required for certain license plates manufactured on or
after a specified date. The bill was discussed in the Transportation Legislation
Review Committee.  The bill allows owners to keep their specific license
plate number as personalized license plates.  Any costs of producing
and distributing additional new license plates may not be used to calculate
the amount necessary to recover the costs of producing plates, decals,
validating tabs, and distribution.  Proposed changes in the bill do
not apply to horseless carriages.
03:58:29 PM  

The bill changes the color scheme of the license plate from dark green letters and numbers on a white mountain and dark green sky background to white letters and numbers on a dark green mountain and white sky background.
