SB561 Repeal of front license plate law in Texas

http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLoo...81R&Bill=SB561


Sorry if this is a repost. I did a search and couldn't find where anyone posted this info.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Can you add comments? Maybe if we get enough folks to say they want it on the website we can push this through!!

I know Camaro5 alone can't but with so many car clubs and such in the state...I'd think there would be more than enough support!!

I am in full support of this even though my car won't be registered in Texas even though I live here.

Heck yes, Heck yes, i'm in Law Enforcement and we never look at the front license plate. When you run a license plate your behind the vehicle, never in the front. I really hope this law passes.

I've dug through the site and can't find an area to comment, but it does list the bill author......Mike Jackson. We could write him in support....maybe it'd help.

How many times has it been tried to get this signed into law in Texas? It fails every time for some insane reason. Maybe this time it will pass (crosses fingers).

Just in case, I'm installing my front plate in such a way that I can remove it at a later date without leaving a sign that it was there at all. Now I just need my car so I can figure out how I want to do it.

I've always heard that traffic cops use the license plate to bounce the laser off of, and if you don't have it, then they get pissy. Any truth to that?

I hope it passes this time, it's such a crime to put a plate on the front of a Camaro.

Thumbs up

I'm betting that it passes, if for no other reason just for the fact that it'll save them money on front plates! (cuz you know the price of registration wont go down!). All the front plate is, is another reason to get a ticket if the cop doesn't like you!

I just hope we can get the legislation to pass this thru. Having a front license plate on the vehicles should be a option....cops do like to point it out though if you do not have one....I have been given a ticket for it to only have it thrown out once I showed the courts I had one.....it's just dumb.....here is my thing though....how much money does the state get off of people for not having one? Think about it......it's just not really nessassary. Just tell me where I need to sign to get this law revoked and I will sign on it today....

Is it possible to email Mike Jackson and ask how we can support this bill? Does anyone know of an email list for reps. or senators?

**EDIT** Here's is Mike Jackson's website. If you scroll down you can email his office. I'll try emailing him to see how we can help or show our support. Its worth a try guys. Let's flood his email account

But the red X between stage 1 and stage 2 leads me to believe it failed to complete stage. . i WANT it to pass , but to me ,it doesn't look good

The box would turn red if it failed to complete the stage. There were two similar bills introduced, they stopped one and the other one was sent to the committee. The the legislature is not in session, there is no movement. Once the committees meet again it will be up for review. If the committee accepts, it's got a chance. The committee members are the ones we should be contacting to encourage passing this bill.
