DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans would only be required to display one license plate on their vehicles instead of two under a bill headed for a House vote.

Supporters of the bipartisan bill including state Rep. Terry Johnson, a southern Ohio Republican, say it could save the state $1 million annually.

Backers say the proposal could also save car owners the cost of having holes drilled in vehicles not built to have front plates.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/10Y81Jq ) the bill cleared the Ohio House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee Tuesday without debate.

The bill would bring Ohio in line with Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Police oppose the change, saying it cuts in half their ability to identify drivers involved in traffic violations and crimes.
