Bill to Provide for Single Year-of-Manufacture License Plate Introduced in Montana

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation has been introduced in Montana 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. Under the bill, the original Montana license plate must be legible and bear the year that matches the year in which the vehicle was manufactured. The measure would reinstate the single plate requirement that existed for motor vehicles between 1948–1950.
