Michigan's blue license plates to be phased out
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — It's been 24 years since the state introduced the "Old Blue" license plate, and some residents say they'll have a tough time saying goodbye.
It will cost about $11 million to reissue the plates, according to an analysis from the House Fiscal Agency. But the state could break even or even get some extra revenue if motorists choose to buy other plates that carry a special fee or if motorists driving vehicles with blue plates and expired or fake tabs are forced to get new, legal plates.
We don't need to replace the blue plate. It's works perfectly fine for what we need. That money can go towards a SBT cut instead.
