Mississippi license plate controversy
JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI)- A national organization threatened to sue the state of Mississippi over its license plate.
The American Humanist Association sent a letter to the state’s revenue commissioner and attorney general objecting to the car tag because it has the phrase “In God We Trust,” which is part of the state seal.
It wanted the state to get a new standard license plate design without a religious phrase or allow people to get another license plate design without paying an extra fee.
Mississippi has specialty license plates for an extra charge.
The new standard car tag has been sold since January.
