Support Our Troops license plates are now available in Alabama for purchase and the funds will go to help families of Alabama active-duty troops.
The extra cost of the support our troops specialty plate is $50.
The license plate has been approved by the Alabama Joint Legislative Oversight Committee.
But before the revenue department will actually manufacture the plates and place them in the tag offices for general sales, the revenue department must first collect an initial group of plate two hundred and 50 applications using the form provided by the state.
Once those 250 are collected, the revenue department will make the plate available in the normal manner statewide.
This first 250 must be ordered by October 2007.
You can apply for the tag by going to your local tag office and fill out the application form.
Alabama residents can register for updates and see more information on the plates at www.supportourtroops.org
