Tennessee to Get New Specialty License Plates
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen is once again allowing the latest batch of specialty license plates to become law without his signature. Bredesen has long complained about the proliferation of specialty tags, urging lawmakers to rein in the number of plates available.
The state's specialty plates program began about two decades ago as a way to help fund the Tennessee Arts Commission, which receives 40 percent of the additional $35 the plates cost. The 16 designs this year include United Way, Rotary International and Colon Cancer Awareness. Any new plate must get 1,000 pre-orders before it can go into production.
