A bill by Assemblymember Anthony Portantino - who represents part of Monrovia - requiring legislators who have legislative vanity plates on their personal cars to pay the same fees paid by the general public for personalized plates, has passed its first legislative hurdle. AB 2068 was unanimously approved by the Assembly Transportation Committee this afternoon.
Portantino said: "License plate fees are used to partially fund the California Highway Patrol. So, when legislators don't pay the full fee, they are in effect, stiffing the CHP."
