Planned Parenthood is on the fast track to countering “Choose Life” custom license plates that will be made available by the Nebraska DMV next year. The women’s health clinic produced their own “My Body, My Choice” license plates.
Groups across the state fought for and against the passage of LB 46, which rules the State of Nebraska should issue Pro-life license plates. The bill was signed into law in April. The DMV approved Planned Parenthood’s design and are currently working to get 250 pre-orders. The group reported they are over halfway to their goal.
An organization that meets the Nebraska’s Department of Motor Vehicles requirements may submit an application for the creation of a specialty plate representing an organization. The organization must be a nonprofit corporation or a group of nonprofit corporations with a common purpose. The primary activity or purpose of the organization serves the community, contributes to the welfare of others, and is not offensive or discriminatory in its purpose, nature, activity, or name; along with several other stipulations.
The Nebraska DMV says on their website, “Specialty plates are offered for several community-oriented organizations, including universities. Anyone can order organizational plates, regardless of group membership or affiliation.” Some of the current organizational plates available are Creighton University, Friends of the Union Pacific RR Museum tag, and Native American history plates.
The organizational plates are more expensive than state-approved specialty plates, and all the proceeds from them go to the DMV or Highway Trust Fund. License plate fees vary based on a car's value and weight, and people seeking specialty plates will pay an extra $5 for most plates approved by the Legislature or an extra $70 for plates created by organizations.
Politicized license plates are bound to make the game commonly referred to as the "license plate game, very interesting, and probably spark many debates on your car travels to come.
