    Legislation has been introduced that would not require luxury vehicles to have a front license plate in Texas.

    Rep. Ken King (R-Dist. 88) introduced House Bill 673, which would add luxury vehicles to the list of vehicles that do not need a front license plate.

    Tractors, motorcycles, trailers and semitrailers are already on the list.

    The bill defines luxury vehicles as a passenger car worth more than $60,000.
