Three More License Plates

September 19th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

The Governor and Cabinet approved the designs of three new license
plates, which clears them for sale. One promotes Nascar, another the
state corrections service organization and the third helps support the
families of troops serving overseas.

Louie Wainwright, a former corrections secretary helped push the plate
for corrections. “The funds are used for disasters of the families of the employees, such
as burning houses, hurricanes, storms, so forth. We fell the plate will
be purchased by many of the employees, and hopefully, the people in the
community will recognize Corrections is part of the criminal justice
system and should have the same visibility as the others. “

Martin Boire lobbied the Save Our Troops plate through the legislature.

“Some of that money will be used to look out for the moral of the
troops and that we’re aware of what they do, and thank you for it. Part
of the money will be used to look out for their families here at home,
because these people are out there and they have left a family at home
and that family has a car that has to be fixed. It has kids that need to
go to school. They have every day needs.”

Mike Helton is the President of NASCAR and expects the plate to be one
of the top selling specialty plates in Florida.

“We feel like the importance of the plate is to give NASCAR fans in the state of Florida a chance to show their enthusiasm and the revenue from the tag will fund the sports foundation. Some will get to NASCAR Foundation which is a foundation for families a couple years a go to support charitable organizations in Florida and across the nation.”
