MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - At least 250 Alabama vehicles will soon be using license plates featuring the rattlesnake emblem and "Don't Tread on Me" warning popular with tea party groups.
The state Revenue Department confirms the Montgomery-based Foundation for Moral Law has succeeded in getting 250 paid orders for the tags. That's the number the Revenue Department requires for production.
The foundation, started by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, sought the specialty tag to generate revenue. The tag costs $50, with $41.25 of that going to the foundation.
Orange Beach businessman Dean Young helped promote the tag orders, and he says reaching the goal is no surprise. He says the tag allows people to make a statement that they've had enough and want America to regain the spirit that made it great.
