Lawmakers May hold on License Plates for Driver without Car Insurance

Chicot Memorial


(Jackson, MS)- House members are approving a bill that would require county tax collectors to check whether Mississippians have auto insurance before renewing their license tags. Representatives voted 82-33 Wednesday to approve House Bill 319 , sending it to the Senate for more work. House Insurance Committee Chairman Gary Chism, R-Columbus, says a new computer system will allow county officials to check for insurance. County tax collectors had previously opposed such duties. Leaders have said that a 2012 plan to have a statewide computer system allowing checks of insurance status should finally take effect in July.
