LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) â€” Nebraskans will likely notice a change when it comes time to renew their license plates because reminder letters will now come from the state instead of counties.

Lahm says her department will use an automated method that should save time and money. Previously, each county sent reminders when vehicle registrations were due for renewal.
