A proposal to allow Arkansans to receive their vehicle renewal notifications by e-mail is heading to the state House of Representatives for a vote, reports the Associated Press. The House Public Transportation Committee on Tuesday advanced a bill by Democratic Rep. Kathy Webb of Little Rock that would allow Arkansans to choose to receive notices by e-mail, rather than through regular mail. Vehicle owners currently have the option to renew their registration online.
Webb said that nearly 300,000 Arkansas renewed their vehicle registrations online last year. The state would save $100,000 if that many people received their renewal notices by e-mail, she said. The proposal now heads to the full House for a vote.
