The idea of a letting corporations like Disney or Nike sponsor license plates is being floated by state Sen. Mike Fasano, a New Port Richey Republican and transportation budget chairman.
“We were asked to come up with new innovative ways to save taxpayers money,” Fasano explained. “I figured why not give it a shot and see if people are interested. I think it’s a fun choice.”
The legislation, which is still being crafted, would generate money for the state but use some proceeds to give drivers a discount on annual registration fees if they get a corporate tag.
Here’s my example showing why this is stupid idea:
Of course, Florida already lets corporations all but sponsor campaigns and elections, so letting them emblazon license plates should come easily.
