CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire’s House is considering tightening the laws on registering vehicles for people who write a bad check for the registration of one vehicle and then want to register a different vehicle.

The proposal would let the state suspend someone’s ability to register vehicles until they clear the bad check.

Current law allows the state to suspend the specific registration paid for with the bad check, but it does not stop the person from registering a different vehicle. The House Transportation Committee is recommending passing the bill as a way to close the loophole.

The House votes on the bill Wednesday.
