House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session

From: Representative Christopher M. Rabb and Rep. Austin A. Davis
To: All House members
Subject: Allowing for digital proof of vehicle registration and alternative fuel source designation on registration cards
As our country continues to advance technologically, it is important that Pennsylvania law reflects those developments. This is especially imperative for our vehicle registration laws, as our state has nearly 9 million licensed drivers on the roadways.
That’s why it’s time to allow drivers to choose between receiving paper or electronic proof of vehicle registration. Additionally, to register a vehicle in Pennsylvania, a form must be completed with specific information pertaining to the vehicle and the owner. 
As an increasingly larger proportion of vehicles on Pennsylvania are powered by an array of alternative fuel sources, this critical piece of information should be documented.
The time has come to update our vehicle registration laws to reflect the technological advancements occurring across the nation. That is why we this forthcoming legislation will also require vehicle registration forms to have a designation for fuel type that classifies if a vehicle uses gasoline, diesel, hydrogen cell, electric or other sources.
Please join us in ensuring the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation can accurately and easily determine which vehicle fuel types are being used on our roadways by supporting this common-sense legislation.

Introduced as HB2111
