What type(s) of front license plates are allowed?

Is it still legal to have Vermont Strong plates on my vehicle? Are any other alternate front license plates allowed?

Act 71, which became law on July 1, 2017, removed any end date from the law that authorizes certain motor vehicles registered in Vermont to display Vermont Strong plates that cover a regular front license plate. No other alternate plates are allowed.
