Advocates including the mother of murdered lifeguard Molly Bish say it is one "easy" change that could make a world of difference.
Maggie Bish provided a very human voice among a host of experts and officials who lobbied the Joint Committee on Transportation for ‘Molly's Bill’ also known as E-Z ID.
E-Z ID would replace one of the six digits on state license plates with a recognizable symbol.
Bish said she only wishes the system had been in place back in June of 2000 when she spotted the man who may have abducted her daughter from a Warren pond.
Bish's body was discovered nearly three years later to this day no suspect has been charged.
Proponents say the switch would mean potential witnesses to crimes would have to remember fewer random numbers and letters and say children as young as 2 can identify common symbols for investigators.
