AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) – There’s a new Texas license plate that remembers the Alamo.
With each $30 plate sold, $22 will go directly to the Alamo to pay for preservation efforts and historical educational programs according to the Texas General Land Office.
“The creation of this new license plate coincides with a new and exciting chapter in the Alamo’s history as we continue to make great strides in the historic master plan process,” Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush said. “Not only will this license plate enable Texans across the state to show their pride for the Alamo, the Shrine of Texas Liberty, but it will also provide valuable funds for continuing preservation work and valuable educational resources so that we can continue to teach visitors about the historic events that occurred on this sacred site.”
“There are a lot of folks who take pride in Texas’ heritage, and the Alamo is the cradle of Texas independence,” said Rep. Lyle Larson who created the design for the plate. “This will give folks the opportunity to embrace that concept when they purchase their license plates and support the restoration of the Alamo for future generations.”
The license plate was designed by the Texas General Land Office in coordination with Representative Lyle Larson and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.
