License plates, don’t tread on me
LICENSE PLATES – Amends existing law to allow for the establishment of specialty license plates for the benefit of the Idaho State Board of Education and to establish a Don’t Tread on Me license plate to generate funds for an existing gun safety education program.

RS31175 / S1317

This legislation amends section 49-402 and 49-402D of Idaho Code to provide for the State Board of Education to be a permissible beneficiary of the Gadston “Don’t Tread On Me” license plate. This legislation further amends section 33-1628 of Idaho Code to establish a firearm safety grant fund and program for the purposes of firearms safety education currently found in section 33-1628 of Idaho Code.

A one-time cost of $4,000 is estimated to cover Idaho Transportation Department’s cost of development. Custom vehicles would pay the regular registration fees, including the initial program fee and the annual program fee.
