LANSING (WKZO) -- Senate Minority Floor Leader Tupac Hunter has introduced legislation to require that all Michigan vehicles have license plates on the front of them as well as the rear.  He says that this will make it easier to identify vehicles for crime reporting and safety purposes.

"This is a simple bill that could have a significant impact on deterring crime and catching perpetrators throughout this state," says Hunter, adding that identifying and reporting a license plate number is often one of the most important pieces to solving a crime.

Currently, 31 states have both a front and a rear license plate requirement.  Michigan switched to a single license plate system in 1981.
