GA governor to unveil winning license plate design
ATLANTA (AP) - The wait is over for Georgia's new license plate design.
Gov. Nathan Deal, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Revenue Commissioner Doug MacGinnitie are expected to announce the winning design on Monday at the state Capitol. The contest ran up against a bit of controversy earlier this summer after confusion arose over whether the motto "In God We Trust" would be on the new car tag.
The public was invited to re-vote on the top eight designs, which were narrowed down from 500 entries submitted from across the state. State officials chose the winner from the top three vote-getters.
Georgia drivers can get the new plates next year. People have the option of adding the religious motto to the tag for an additional dollar.
