CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada is gearing up for its 150th birthday and you can show your sesquicentennial pride.
Governor Sandoval unveiled the new design for the license plate that commemorates the 150 years since Nevada became a state. This design will go to the Assembly Transportation Committee Thursday for approval.
“The design of this plate, which harkens back to original Nevada license plates, is a wonderful representation of the spirit of Nevada,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “I commend the planning committee, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the individuals who worked diligently to produce this design and I look forward to seeing these plates on cars across our great state.”
The design, which you can see on the right, features the 150th anniversary logo as well as Nevada’s Battle Born seal. It includes “The Silver State” wording on a Nevada blue background. Funds from the plates support the work of the Nevada 150th Commission.
“The committee is very excited about the new Battle Born commemorative plate,” Sesquicentennial Planning Committee Co-Chair Bob Brown said. “We feel it visually reflects the spirit of our wonderful State of Nevada.”
“We've worked diligently with the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Governor's Office and some very talented artists to come forward with a plate that represents our entire state and one that will inspire Nevadans to purchase and display on their vehicles with Nevada Pride,” Committee Co-Chair Neena Laxalt said.
The plates will be available through the DMV.
