Proposed King license plate shelved until next year
1/11/2019, 6 a.m.
Fewer than 100 vehicle owners applied to purchase a proposed state license plate honoring civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., Richmond Delegate Dawn Adams’ office reported.
That’s far short of the minimum of 450 vehicle owners needed for Delegate Adams, D-68th, to introduce legislation seeking General Assembly approval for the plate.
“We’re going to keep the campaign going,” said Maureen Hains, legislative assistant to the delegate, “and try to get enough buyers so we can introduce the legislation next year.”
