We at the Florida Lighthouse Association had asked that no other tags be added to our bill, but they were anyway. We have no opposition to any of the ones added, we just fighting to get ours passed. This would provide income each year as long at the number of tags averaged 1,000 a year. We believe that many more will sell each year.
The big push would be the first year as most people will re-new each year without changing the type of tag, so we would have a constant source of income for lighthouse restoration and preservation.

Thanks Justin. I believe if you are out of state you can get a sample tag. It would have the letters SAMPL on it for a small fee. However, tag most likely will not be avialable until early next year. I will make a post when I know for sure.

From The News Press

The Florida Lighthouse Association's specialty license plate, "Visit Our Lights," will be available for purchase this week, according to Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

The additional $25 for the specialty plate, which is tax deductible, will provide sustained funding for Florida's lighthouses. It was the association's No. 1 goal, according to Naples resident and association president Stan Farnham.

The association is a nonprofit group of citizen activists dedicated to the preservation of the 30 remaining historic lighthouses that line the state's 1,200-mile coastline.
