Comment window opens for ‘Keeping Lights On’ license plate

Plate is intended to honor Wisconsin utility workers
Bill would ask young Wisconsinites to redesign license plate

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) — The comment period has opened for the proposed “Keeping the Lights On” Wisconsin license plate as an homage to the state’s utility workers.
The application for the plate is available for review and comment at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Division of Motor Vehicles website until July 2.
Any objections will be passed to the legislative Transportation Committees for the final decision on the fate of the plate.
The individuals sponsoring the proposal submitted the application in accord with the DMV’s Authorized Special Group license plate process.
The process includes paying a $15,500 development fee and collecting the signatures of 500 Wisconsin residents who plan to buy the plate.

If the plate is authorized, the group must maintain 500 valid special plate registrations after three years, or the DMV will discontinue issuing the plates.

A complete list of special plates available now is at the DMV website.
