Under the bill, if the plate is not attached to the exterior of the historic military vehicle, it must be present in the vehicle and available upon demand by law enforcement officers.
   

Legislation to exempt historic military vehicles from the requirement that they display a license plate unless the vehicle was originally manufactured with lighting and mounting provisions for a plate was approved by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.   

Under the bill, which has already been approved by the Senate, if the plate is not attached to the exterior of the historic military vehicle, it must be present in the vehicle and available upon demand by law enforcement officers.

In Michigan, "historic military vehicle" means a vehicle, including a trailer, regardless of the vehicle's size, weight or year of manufacture, that was manufactured for use in any country's military forces and is maintained to represent its military design and markings accurately. The bill will now be considered by all members of the Michigan House of Representatives.
