ATLANTA (AP) -- Gov. Nathan Deal has signed into law a bill that eliminates the $1 charge for the optional "In God We Trust" decals for car license plates.
Senate Bill 293 also makes displaying a county decal optional. The license plate bill comes after the state had to re-do a public contest last year because "In God We Trust" appeared on possible designs without making it clear the motto was a sticker and not permanent.
The new law takes effect July 1.
