License Plates Have Made Michigan Headlines Lately
License plates have made Michigan headlines lately, with Gov. Rick Snyder currently mulling new legislation that would allow Michiganders to buy fundraising plates supporting several groups.
As of May 31, there were more than 300,000 personalized license plates in circulation, but the Secretary of State maintained a list of 27,401 configurations that were either preemptively deemed unacceptable or were requested by motorists but denied.
The state's personalized plate policy broadly prohibits any configurations with a connotation offensive to good taste and decency, and specifically prohibits references to drugs or alcohol, certain body parts, violence or disparaging phrases. Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
