|OKLAHOMA VETERANS NEEDED FOR MOTORCYCLE PLATES|| Veterans can now apply for special motorcycle license
tags in Oklahoma. The proposal was signed into law Nov. 1, but according
to the Oklahoma Tax Commission, which manages special license plate production,
a minimum of 100 pre-applications are required by May 1st or the OTC won't
put them into production.
The proposal, which was part of the law signed by the Governor, states "anyone honorably discharged from any branch of the United States Military" is eligible to apply for these motorcycle tags, and the proceeds will go to help fund the 45th Infantry Division Museum, one of the finest Military Museums in the country, which has had its operating budget cut in half by the state.
