House OKs bill to issue special plates

A bill approved by the Arizona House Tuesday would allow the issuance of special license plates to commemorate the state’s centennial.

Opponents say the state already has dozens of special plates and a new design would simply cause more confusion.

Democratic Rep. Steve Farley says the state should consider adding a centennial commemorative statement to all designs issued in 2012, instead of issuing an entirely new plate.

The House approved a similar bill presented by Republican Rep. Jack Harper Monday. That bill includes a “Don’t Tread On Me” special plate that commemorates Tea Party supporters.

Harper has said the centennial bill version was proposed to keep the special plates’ bill alive in case the other one is vetoed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer.

Both bills go to the state Senate.
