Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – No longer would you see rusted out and unreadable license plates from Michigan under a bill sponsored by an Upper Michigan lawmaker signed into law yesterday by Governor Rick Snyder.

The measure requires drivers to get a new license plate every ten years at a cost of 5 dollars.

It will take effect in 2015 and ban plates issued from 2005 and before from being renewed.

Republican Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba sponsored the legislation.

He says when license plates are allowed to get rusty police cannot identify a car as easily.

The measure would also require the Secretary of State to study a potential move to digitally printed license plates.
