House Resolution 36
A RESOLUTION URGING THE STATE TAX COMMISSION TO RESTORE THE USE OF COUNTY IDENTIFYING DATA IN TAG NUMBERS.
WHEREAS, Mississippi law previously required that the number of the tag shall be written across the face of it and the number of the tag shall represent the registration number; and
WHEREAS, license tags for private passenger vehicles were required to have printed the name of the county in which such vehicle is registered and the date of expiration below the number of the tag; and
WHEREAS, in the past, the State Tax Commission used the system of county alphabetical and numerical identification for individual tags; and
WHEREAS, the implementation of this system can help law enforcement, county and state agencies to better identify vehicles; and
WHEREAS, this form of county alphabetical and numerical identification should not apply to special license tags or plates, commonly known as vanity or personalized tags:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, That we do hereby urge the State Tax Commission to restore the use of county identifying data in tag numbers.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That copies of this resolution be furnished to the State Tax Commission and to the members of the Capitol Press Corps.
