You think you’re the biggest KU FAN and you have that proudly stamped on your state personalized license plate.
The Legislature may be messing with you.
A bill sent Wednesday to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ desk would limit a specific combination of letters, numbers or both on a plate to only one vehicle in the state. Currently, a specific combination of letters, numbers or both on a plate can be given to one vehicle in each of Kansas’ 105 counties.
The Kansas Department of Revenue’s Division of Motor Vehicles said the proposed limitation would save programming costs on its new vehicle information system.
But state Rep. Ron Worley, R-Lenexa, didn’t like the idea of essentially “eliminating a lot of personalized licensed plates.”
His motion, however, to reject the bill died on a 62-62 vote.
The measure was later approved 86-38, sending it to Sebelius for consideration.
It was part of a larger bill dealing with several other changes to the law regarding distinctive license plates.
