A new specialty license plate could provide more money for upkeep of the state’s World War Two veterans memorial in Springfield.
Representative Raymond Poe’s bill would create that specialty plate depicting the memorial at Oak Ridge Cemetery. Each plate would have a $40 fee in addition to the normal license plate costs. The extra fee would be split between maintenance of the memorial and a fund to defray administrative costs for issuing a new plate.
Poe’s bill easily passed the House last week and now moves to the Senate.
