Since our last post announcing our intentions to apply for an official Kentucky license plate, we submitted our application and met with the Transportation Department. Due to what we found out, we have withdrawn our application. There are two main reasons for this:
- An organization applying for a plate may not be involved in the promotion of religion or non-religion. KySS proudly supports atheist groups and the normalization of atheism in society, and this counts as the promotion of non-religion.
- There is a new rule requiring the name of the applying organization to appear on the plate itself. Our initial plate design does not follow this rule.
This does not mean that we are giving entirely up on the license plate. We are going back to the drawing board, adjusting the plate design, and considering working with other groups. When there are updates we will post them here.
Thank you for your support!
