Maryland Bills to Provide for Single License Plate to be Considered on Feb. 5, 2015

Legislation (H.B. 61) has been reintroduced in the Maryland House of Delegates to require the issuance of only a single license plate for all motor vehicles. A second bill (H.B. 62) provides that historic vehicles and street rods may display only the rear plate if the front plate is stored inside the vehicle. Both bills will be considered by the House Environment and Transportation Committee on Thursday, February 5, 2015.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Environment and Transportation Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 61 and H.B. 62


  • H.B. 61 would save money, conserve resources and bring Maryland in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
  • H.B. 62 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Maryland House Environment and Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 61 and H.B. 62.

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.

Regarding H.B. 61:

"H.B. 61 would save money" Will the cost savings be passed to Maryland citizens? The bottom line is that this proposal will make Maryland more revenue since their DMV will only need to provide a single plate for vehicle registration. A question that needs to be asked of the state legislators is whether registration fees will be reduced to reflect the issuance of one less plate.

"...and bring Maryland in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement." Why is this important? To me, this is a big "so what".

Here is the link for voting on the Bills:

HB 61: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2015RS/votes_comm/hb0061_env.pdf

HB 62: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2015RS/votes_comm/hb0062_env.pdf

It looks like the report says Historic and Hot Rods (HB 62) got a favorable report to be effective on 10/01/2015. Here is the website for the results:

http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?pid=billpage&stab=01&id=HB0062&tab=subject3&ys=2015RS

However, HB 61 got an unfavorable report.

Being that I'm no politician, I had to look up what it means when a Bill receives an unfavorable report and it says:

Those bills given an unfavorable report by the committee appear on the chamber calendar under the heading "Unfavorable Reports." The clerk asks if the chamber will vote "to accept the committee's unfavorable report and reject the bill." At this point the bill's supporters will still try to save the bills, but if the chamber votes in the affirmative on the motion to reject the bill, then the bill dies. In extremely rare circumstances, when the motion to reject the bill is defeated, then the bill goes back to the LCO for the same treatment that favorably reported bills get, and returns to the chamber as a favorably reported bills.
