A proposed measure to allow NCDMV to produce a special license plate for military veterans passed the final reading in the North Carolina House this week, and has passed the first reading in the Senate.
The state has offered a veterans plate in the past, but according to a published report too few veterans ordered them and it was never issued. The proposed bill would eliminate the current requirement that NCDMV receive at least 300 applications for the plate.
According to the NCDOT.gov website there are 156 speciality plates currently available, with 14 of those classifed as Military with certain designations and not an overall veterans plate.
The measure passed the first reading in the Senate on Wednesday (March 18) and is now in the Committee on Rules and Operations of the Senate.
