SALT LAKE CITY — Utah drivers may be getting a version of their retro black license plates back.
Sen. Lincoln Fillmore, R-South Jordan, is sponsoring SB41, which would create a special license plate commemorating the Utah State Historical Society. The license plates would be black with raised white letters.
Special license plates in Utah are usually white with blue letters.
"There's been a problem creating reflectorized black paint," Fillmore told the Senate Business and Labor Committee on Monday.
The bill instructs the Utah State Tax Commission to try to find reflective black paint. If that can't be obtained, the black license plates would be exempt from the usual reflecting paint requirements.
Utahns who buy the special plating would be making a $25 annual donation to the Utah State Historical Society.
The committee recommended the bill unanimously to the full Senate for debate.
