Special lawmaker plates stay, but changes sought

DENVER (AP) - Colorado lawmakers are keeping their special license plates after all.

A proposal to eliminate the plates over concerns lawmakers don't get some traffic tickets has failed to advance this year.

The sponsor of the measure tells The Associated Press he allowed the bill to miss a key deadline Wednesday, thus spiking the proposal. Republican Rep. Chris Holbert says he couldn't persuade fellow lawmakers to get rid of the plates completely.

Another bill to allow lawmakers to keep the plates, but ensure they get photo radar tickets, is still pending. That bill seeks to connect vehicle registration to the legislative plates.

Both proposals are a response to a report last year from KCNC-TV that lawmaker weren't getting photo radar tickets.
