Customized Team License Plates Approved By NJ Legislature; To Raise $1 Million To Help Balance Budget

plateNew Jersey sports fans could show their pride — and pump a few bucks into the state budget — under a plan for customized team license plates that cleared the Legislature today. New Jersey hopes to cash in on the roster of teams in and around the state, offering a buffet of vanity plates to raise about $1 million to help balance its budget. “We want the sports fans to show their pride and on the other hand we’re going to generate money for the state budget,” said Assemblyman Robert Schroeder (R-Bergen), who sponsored the bill that would allow the Motor Vehicle Commission to contract with pro-sports teams. “I’ll choose a Giant plate over the Assembly plate.”

The plates would be made-to-order and available for any team in the country, he said. Though the price would be set by the Motor Vehicles commissioner, Schroeder said he thought the plates would cost $60 a pop, with an extra $100 charge for further personalization. Full story in Star Ledger

  1. I think I read an article a few years ago saying that the 47 specialized plates we already have in NJ actually cost more to produce than they bring in, in some cases. Hope these actually make some money like they say!

  2. I hear the blue claws are offering plates you have to pay twenty five dollars to the state and the state gives the blue claws fifty dollars.
