Connecticut Bill Amended to Continue to Allow Year-of-Manufacture License Plates

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

With opposition from SEMA, legislation that threatened to disallow the use of year-of-manufacture license plates in Connecticut after July 1, 2013, was amended in committee to continue to allow use of these plates. Under the original bill, the owner of an antique, rare or special-interest motor vehicle who was authorized to display a year of manufacture plate could continue to display the plate until the registration period expired. However, upon renewal of registration, the owner would have been required to display a current registration plate.
