In some folk’s view, it’s the Tea Party symbol, the license plate equivalent of the Don’t Tread on Me Gadsen Flag. Missouri state House Bill 307 was approved in the Missouri House Tuesday, April 5, 2011, on a wide margin, 133 to 18. It’s significant that all 18 NO votes were from democrats. The bill now goes to the Missouri Senate where it is expected to be passed on a similar margin.
If you haven’t seen what the proposed new plate looks like, here it is.
I urge you to call, write, fax and e-mail your Missouri state Senator and urge him to vote Yes on this bill and to push for its immediate passage. If you don’t know how to contact your state senator, here’s a link to let you find their contact information. My state Senator is David Pearce.
