Bill Caption

Relating to the issuance of Blessed are the Peacemakers specialty license plates.

Fiscal Notes

An impact of $0 through the biennium ending August 31, 2019.

The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions of the bill. 

Bill Analysis

Under current law, the Transportation Code introduces specific license plate designs to be made available. HB 1256 would make a new design available that features a black and white United States flag with a blue bar beneath the stars and the words "Blessed are the Peacemakers" at the bottom of the plate.

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 1256 neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
