Specialty plates — new and old– spark army of bills

LANSING–  State lawmakers are considering yet another specialty license plate, this one to benefit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Critics say the state has plenty of license plates —  60 is enough. But every other Great Lake state has significantly more than Michigan. Legislators can’t resist the urge to tinker with specialty plates. Legislation is pending on a wide range of ideas on how to improve the fundraising system– from limiting the number to 10 to expanding them to commercial vehicles.
