LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Anyone with an older license plate may soon have to find a replacement. Legislation is heading to Governor Snyder’s desk to require Michigan drivers to get a new license plate every decade.  The bill also calls on the Secretary of State’s office to study digitally-printed license plates instead of the aluminum stamped plates made at a prison in Adrian.  Drivers currently aren’t required to get a new license plate until it’s unreadable, but enforcement of that hasn't been consistent.  Authorities say there are still rusted-out license plates dating to the mid-1990s still on the road.
