Two Oklahoma State Senators Propose MAGA License Plate

On Tuesday, Oklahoma state Senator Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) and Marty Quinn (R-Claremore) introduced a bill for special license plates to be offered by the state of Oklahoma. This would allow the state to offer license plates with Trump Campaign slogans on them “Make America Great Again” and “Keep America Great”.

According to the bill, “The license plates shall be designed in consultation with the corporation or entity designated by Donald J. Trump for such purposes. The Tax Commission shall be authorized to enter into a licensing agreement with the corporation or entity designated by Donald J. Trump for such purposes for any licensing fees which may be required in order to use the organization’s logo or design.”

The proposed license plates would cost an additional $35 for taxes and fees associated with the vehicle registration. Part of the additional cost would go to benefit two veteran organizations, Folds of Honor Foundation, and Warriors for Freedom Foundation.

Senator Quinn is quoted as saying “I believe these license plates could be very popular with Oklahomans, Our President has been very supportive of our veterans.” according to TulsaWorld

In an article by KFOR there are mixed feelings about the plates.

“I don’t think it’s such a bad deal, especially if the money’s going to the veterans,” says Gary Pierce, an Oklahoma motorist.

“I know who started that ‘Make America Great Again,’ and I’m not in his corner,” says Lawrence Johnson, an Oklahoma motorist.

later in the article senator Dahm is quoted, “the beauty of the plate is that it’s a specialty. If you don’t want it, you don’t have to buy it.”

“There’s people that are upset with just the president in general, so I understand that people have those feelings, potentially negative feelings against the president, but the great thing is, here in America, you have freedom of speech,” he says.

Dahm says the proposal will still have to be voted on by the entire state legislature and get the signature of approval from the governor before hitting the roads.

According to the proposed bill if passed the tentative effective date is set in November of 2020 for those who would like a MAGA or KAG license plates.
