JUNEAU — The Alaska Senate State Affairs Committee is considering a bill to move the responsibility for approving special license plates from the legislature to the Division of Motor Vehicles.
The bill, which was first reported by KTUU, would give the DMV the authority to approve specialty license plates. It comes as the legislature is considering four new license plate proposals.
A statement from bill sponsor Sen. Bill Wielechowski says one specialty plate required 15 committee meetings and nine bill revisions before it was approved.
The Anchorage Democrat says there are better uses for legislators’ time than approving license plates.
