As if Illinois didn’t have enough different license plates, there are at least seven new variations being proposed. The Transportation: Vehicles and Safety Committee could take up the proposed plates tomorrow. Illinois currently has several dozen plates ranging from collegiate, to sports, to military and other special interests.
Proposed USS Illinois plates would cost an additional forty dollars, which twenty-five of that would be put into the USS Illinois Commissioning Committee and Support Fund. Fifteen dollars would be put in the Secretary of State Special License Plate fund. There would also be additional fees for yearly renewals. Another measure that could be heard wouldn’t only create the Choose Life plates, it would create a Choose Life Fund through the State treasury. Other propose plates include Little league plates, Lions Club plates, In God We Trust plates with money being deposited into the Illinois Veterans Assistance Fund, Firefighter plates and Illinois Youth Wrestling plates.
