Nevada Legislature: Assembly approves mandatory 8-year license plate renewal

The Associated Press

Nevada Assembly members have approved a measure requiring car owners obtain reissued license plates every eight year period.

Assembly members voted 28-13 to approve AB484 on Saturday. It now goes to the Senate.

The measure requires car owners to obtain new state-issued license plates every eight years. Supporters said the plates cost a minimum of $3.50 and would ensure that more license plates meet federal standards and remain in better condition over time.

A handful of Republicans opposed the measure and said it burdened taxpayers and would force drivers to turn in workable plates.

The bill would take full effect in July 2016.
