Input on new Missouri license plate sought

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Missourians will have an opportunity to provide input on the new license plate design to commemorate Missouri's 200th anniversary of statehood. The public meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at Three Rivers College - Tinnin Fine Arts Center, Poplar Bluff, MO 63901.

State law requires the Department of Revenue begin a full reissuance of license plates with the new plate design no later than Jan. 1, 2019. The new design commemorating the bicentennial will replace the current Missouri bluebird license plate.

According to state law (301.125, RSMo), an Advisory Committee is responsible for determining the new plate design. The committee consists of the director of the Department of Revenue or his or her designee, the superintendent of the Highway Patrol, the correctional enterprises administrator, the director of the Department of Transportation, the executive director of the State Historical Society of Missouri, and the respective chairpersons of both the Senate and House of Representatives Transportation Committees.

The Committee invites public input into the final design through a series of public meetings.
