Save our children, save our lighthouses, save our waterways, but no save our trails.

Has anybody ever thought about bringing this up with the SOS as a fund raiser for the trails?

Since you thought of it..................

But, make sure it includes the glfwda logo, not gl4x4.

Sorry, gang, but you'll have to wait at least 3 years. Those specialty plates are not at the discretion of the Secretary of State. They are created through legislative action and require the governor's signature. Gov. Granholm has vetoed several attempts to create more specialty plates, has vetoed attempts to extend existing specialty plates whose laws are sunsetting, and has vowed to veto any additional attempts to add to the list of available specialty plates.

Her argument is that having too many plates makes it difficult for law enforcement to do their job because witnesses will get confused... :miff:

(2) Special organization plates shall bear letters and numbers as the secretary of state prescribes. Special organization plates may contain the symbol of the organization to the left of the plate number.

(a) A copy of the organization's charter and bylaws, if any.
(b) A statement of the organization's consent to use of the organization's symbol or emblem on special organization plates. The statement shall be signed by the president or chief executive officer of the organization.
(c) A sample of the organization's symbol or emblem.
(d) The name of the organization's representative who will serve as a contact person with the secretary of state.
(5) A member of an organization which has met the criteria set forth in subsection (3) shall individually make application for a special organization plate and submit with the application the organization's confirmation of membership on a form provided by the secretary of state.
(6) An application for a special organization registration plate shall be submitted to the secretary of state pursuant to the procedures prescribed in section 217. In addition to the regular registration fee, each application for a new special organization plate shall be accompanied by a service fee of $25.00. The service fee prescribed in this subsection shall not be charged in connection with an application for a renewal tab for an existing special organization plate. A special organization registration plate shall expire as provided in section 226.
(7) The secretary of state may issue a temporary registration permit to a person who submits an application and the proper fees for a special organization plate, if the applicant's current vehicle registration will expire before his or her receipt of an organization plate. The temporary registration shall expire upon the applicant's receipt of an organization plate or upon the expiration of 60 days after the date of issuance, whichever occurs first. A temporary permit issued under this subsection shall be issued without charge.
(8) This section shall apply to an organization described in section 811c only to the extent provided by section 811c.

And in the end, you can meet all those requirements and the governor will STILL veto it.
