Phoenix Suns License Plates Go On Sale Today; Fee Helps Charities, As Law Requires
Bling out your car with a Phoenix Sun license plate and you'll be helping the basketball team's charity organization.
Arizona law requires that $17 of the $25 fee paid by people who buy specialty plates must go to charities. Other specialty plates in Arizona include: the Arizona Diamondbacks, child abuse prevention, and the one that never looks good in an accident, "In God We Trust."
Organizations that want Arizona to make a specialty plate pay the state $32,000 up front for the privilege, though they must first get the state Legislature to approve the design and message, says Cydney DeModica, spokeswoman for the state Motor Vehicles Divison.
