Press Release from Missouri Senate
State Sen. Bill Stouffer, R-Napton, today applauds members of the Missouri House for giving final passage to Senate Bill 480, a measure that would modify law with respect to motor vehicles and outboard motor titles. The bill also includes language that would prohibit making a specialty license plate for the University of Kansas.
“We had to work fast, in order to restrict KU from acquiring its own specialty license plate in the Show-Me State,” Sen. Stouffer said. “Fortunately, most of my colleagues in both the Missouri Senate and House agreed with my concerns and have sent Senate Bill 480 to the governor for his signature.”
Senate Bill 480 relates to a number of transportation issues, including the “common carrier” definition, medical certification for commercial driver’s licenses and other CDL rules.
“Every year, we seem to pass large transportation-related measures, and this year is no different,” Sen. Stouffer said. “I am glad everybody was able to come together and put this bill into motion. It will not only greatly benefit folks in rural Missouri, but will also keep anybody from having to look at a Missouri license plate with a Jayhawk on it.”
