A bill that would save taxpayers million of dollars by eliminating vehicle registration stickers is moving forward.
Each year, Hoosiers pay to renew their vehicle registrations and receive the decals from the B.M.V to place on their license plates.
The production and postage to mail these decals cost taxpayers more than $6 million dollars annually. However, the state only collects only $300,000 in fines from those driving with expired plates each year.
Under the bill, the B.M.V. would be tasked with the responsibility of figuring out how they could make the transition to electronic vehicle registration by August.
That way, state police wouldn’t need the stickers to see if a plate is expired.
