Plan to replace Ohio license plates scrapped

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Officials have scrapped a plan that would have required Ohioans to replace their car license plates every seven years.

And they'll be able to keep their old gold-lined and bicentennial red, white and blue plates, too.

The replacement plan and scrapping of those old plates was included in a proposal by the Ohio Department of Public Safety. But The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the changes were not included in the two-year budget proposal rolled out this week by Gov. John Kasich.

Ohio Department of Public Safety spokesman Joe Andrews told the newspaper that the changes that were being considered are not priorities for this budget term.

It would have addressed concerns by law enforcement agencies about the difficulty of reading rusted and faded letters and numbers.
