Lawmakers want special license plates for teachers

.

Arizona lawmakers want to create a special license plate benefiting public school educators.

The so-called “extraordinary educators” special plate would raise money for educators who oversee activities, projects or lessons for students in kindergarten and grades one through eight. County school superintendents would help oversee the distribution of the money.

A Senate committee is slated to vote on a bill establishing the plate Tuesday. The House of Representatives already passed the measure in a 50-6 vote.

There are now 53 special license plates that cost $25 each. The state keeps $8 for administrative costs and the rest goes to the charity associated with the plate.

It costs $32,000 to issue a new special plate. Proponents of the educators’ license plate would have until 2016 to raise the $32,000.
