Shuffling through your glove compartment for your registration could be a thing of the past.

A state lawmaker has introduced a bill giving you the option of putting your proof of insurance and vehicle registration on your smartphone, or any other personal electronic device.

The bill would authorize auto-insurance providers to issue insurance documentation in electronic form, and let the Department of Motor Vehicles do the same thing with registration papers.
