Panel OKs ‘In God We Trust’ as Standard Utah License Plate
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah drivers who want to declare "In God We Trust" on their car's license plate may soon be able to do so without paying an extra $11 fee.
A proposal from Orem Rep. Val Peterson could cost Utah about $34,000 a year that it currently receives for those paying to display the plates.
A House of Representatives committee voted 10-0 Tuesday afternoon to advance the bill. It now goes before the entire House for a vote.
Utah began offering plates in 2013 that feature the motto "In God We Trust" and an American flag.
A number of other states offer a similar design as a specialty license plate but only a handful of states, including Florida and Indiana, offer them to drivers without an extra fee.
