A.T. License Plates in Virginia, Too

WDBJ channel 7 television has a 26 February 2008 article on its web site, titled "Specialty license plate supports Appalachian Trail". Here's the gist of it:
"Virginia offers a wide variety of specialty license plates and there may soon be a new one available for Appalachian Trail lovers.

"There's a drive in the state legislature to get a specialty plate passed. A bill has passed the Senate and awaits House approval.

"For the legislation to take effect, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy needs 350 pre-paid applications by July. The specialty plate costs an extra $25, with $15 going to the A.T.C."
So, drive if you must; but if you drive, get an AT-supporting license plate. North Carolina started this ball rolling. Now Virginia. When will the rest of the A.T. states step up to the plate?
