Remember when the state of Georgia accidentally put “In God We Trust” on certain license plates and then included them in the lineup during a vote? They had to conduct a revote because the motto wasn’t actually included on the plates — it was just an optional $1 tag you could put on your own plate.
Now, State Sen. Bill Heath (R-Bremen) wants to make “In God We Trust” a permanent fixture on all state license plates:
Motorists can already purchase a sticker with the motto for $1. The sticker can be placed over the usual county name decal Georgia license plates currently sport. Sen. Bill Heath, R-Bremen, filed the proposal to reverse that order. He proposed the motto would be the default on any license plates manufactured after July 1 but motorists could buy a county decal sticker to cover it if they wanted.
This is one of the bills up for debate beginning next year. Sounds like residents of the state need to contact their representatives now — before this bill becomes an issue next year.
