Brewer to decide on tea party license plate for Arizona
Tea party supporters in Arizona could show off their affinity for the movement on their vehicles if Gov. Jan Brewer signs a bill sent to her Wednesday creating a special “Don’t Tread On Me” license plate.
The plate would feature the rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden Flag that is a symbol of the tea party movement.
The measure creating the plate and two others won final legislative approval late Tuesday in a 22-8 vote by the Senate. The House earlier passed it.
A Brewer spokesman said the governor hasn’t yet taken a public position on the bill.
She faces a May 2 deadline for acting on the measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Don Shooter, of Yuma.
