COLUMBUS—State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today announced that the Ohio House accepted the conference report for Senate Bill (SB) 163, which includes a provision sponsored by Reps. Sheehy and Sobecki (D-Toledo) to create the Fallen Timbers Battlefield license plate. SB 163 also included a provision that would prorate registration fees for electric motor and hybrid vehicle owners, which Rep. Sheehy originally introduced as House Bill (HB) 490 with Rep. Greenspan (R-Westlake) in February 2020. The bill now moves to the governor’s desk for his signature.  

I am pleased to see SB 163 move to the governor’s desk today. The Battle of Fallen Timbers is an important event in both Ohio and American history. Contributions made to the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Commission will assist in their mission to preserve the history and memory of this battle for years to come,” said Rep. Sheehy. “I am also thankful that the provisions to prorate additional registration fees for electric motor and hybrid vehicles were included in this bill. This provision resolves an inequity that required owners of these types of vehicles to pay a full registration fee twice in the same calendar year.”
