Senators passed a bill May 19 that creates a new specialty license plate celebrating Nebraska history.
Under LB317, sponsored by Omaha Sen. John Cavanaugh, Nebraska History licenses plates will be available in alphanumeric or personalized versions beginning Jan. 1, 2023. The plate will be designed in consultation with History Nebraska — formally known as the Nebraska Historical Society — and reflect the importance of preserving the state’s shared history.
The fee for the alphanumeric plate is $5, credited to the Support Nebraska History Cash Fund. Personalized plates will cost $40, with $10 credited to the state Department of Motor Vehicles Cash Fund and $30 credited to the Support Nebraska History Cash Fund.
The bill passed on a 39-0 vote.
