Bill Number: 
HB 926
Bill Purpose: 
Allows dealer license plates to be used on loaner cars

Yes
Explanation: 

HB 926, introduced by Representative Jeff Shawan (Republican - District 153) allows the use of specified dealer license plates on cars loaned to customers while their own vehicle is being repaired.  I was actually fairly surprised this wasn't already allowed, as loaner cars are becoming more and more common versus having an employee shuttle the customer around.  Allowing the use of dealer plates for such vehicles would encourage the practice to grow, and costs the state nothing to authorize.  Seems like a good idea to me.
