The specialty license plate creates a revenue stream to the sponsoring organizations, as each time the plate is renewed, the fee is added to the plate and goes to the cause.

It is disingenuous to disallow the same opportunity to Choose Life supporters.
5. Are law enforcement agencies complaining about the proliferation of specialty license plates.
Specialty plates have been in existence for a very long times. If states beleive there are too many specialty plate, we suggest they set up a procedure whereby only the most popular plates are allowed to survive and termnate those that sell less than a certain number of plates yearly.
