Bill would make license plates for female veterans

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – A bill introduced in the Nevada Assembly would create a license plate specifically for female veterans.

Las Vegas Democratic Assemblyman Elliott Anderson introduced AB277 on Tuesday. It would add the plates to Nevada’s selection of specialized plates that already include one supporting all veterans.

Anderson is a Marine Corps veteran and said the plates would honor women for their service in the predominantly male armed forces.

Funds from the plates would go to veterans’ outreach programs.

Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles limits the number of specialty plates to 25 separate designs at any one time and requires at least 1,000 active registrations each year to continue issuing a plate design.

Some plates currently available include designs supporting UNR, UNLV, rodeos, anti-terrorism efforts, Lake Tahoe, wildlife and agriculture.
