State to begin issuing temporary license plates due to aluminum shortage

There’s an aluminum shortage and it’s affecting a number of states in a way many may not expect. States are running out of aluminum to produce license plates and Montana is one of those states.

This will mean the state’s license plates will have a different look until the supply of aluminum can be restored.

Montana Correctional Enterprises (MCE) has been forced to change its production process for Montana license plates this week after its supply of the material ran out.
