Illinois House approves specialty license plate bill

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - Legislation that would stop the state from issuing new specialty license plate designs for charitable causes has been passed by the Illinois House.

Lawmakers passed the legislation in a 108-1 vote on Monday.  According to the bill's sponsor, State Representative John D'Amico, it's difficult for police to identify all of the state's 109 specialty plates.  

Specialty license plates that have already been issued would continue to be valid under the measure.  In addition, motorists would still have the option to support charities by purchasing large stickers and affixing them to standardized plates.

The measure now moves to the Illinois Senate for consideration.
