Minnesota Legislature

September 8, 2018
David Lameyer of North St. Paul, Minn., holds his personalized license plate, with a number he’s had for 20 years, outside his office in Fridley on Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017. Like at least 1,000 other Minnesotans, Lameyer was unable to transfer his specialized plate — showing his initials and the year he was born — onto a car he bought earlier this year because the state’s troubled new computer system, known as MNLARS, is unable to process such a transfer.
