Bill description: This bill eliminates the requirement for a front license plate on vehicles manufactured without a front license bracket.
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
Currently, vehicles without front and rear brackets face a sales barrier in Idaho. The state requirement to install an aftermarket bracket creates a parts and labor expense. Consumers are less likely to buy vehicles from a dealer if they aren’t street legal. In this case, government is telling manufacturers how they must make their vehicles in order for them to reach the market in Idaho. (+1)
