Christian License Plates Didn't Pass

By  | 

Florida drivers vying for Christian-inspired license plates, including the 'I Believe" plate, now won't have that option.

The proposed bill died at the end of regular legislative session on Friday, May 1st.

While those in favor of the bill believe it's their right to have freedom of expression, critics say putting it on a license plate violates the separation of church and state.

Other residents were more neutral.

"Generally speaking I'm not against it or in favor of it. I think that's a matter of choice," says Tallahassee Resident Maurice Waddell.

One of the proposed plates had an image of a crucified Jesus on it and another had a stained glass window with a cross.

Currently, Floridians are able to purchase more than 100 specialized license plates.
