LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Passenger cars without front-end license plate brackets could drive legally with only a rear plate under a bill advanced by Nebraska lawmakers.

Senators gave first-round approval to the measure on Wednesday with a 25-3 vote.

The bill by Sen. Jim Scheer of Norfolk would allow motorists to request a decal instead that would have to be placed on the driver’s side front windshield. The Department of Motor Vehicles would charge a $100 fee when the vehicle is registered.

Nebraska requires vehicles to display front and rear license plates but has carved out numerous exemptions over the years. Vehicles that are allowed to show only one plate include motorcycles, truck-tractors, buses, dealer vehicles and registered “special interest” vehicles.
