Historic License Plates Future Cloudy

Governor Glenn Youngkin’s proposal to reconsider the removal of Robert E. Lee license plates is stirring debate across Virginia. The governor has not outright vetoed a measure aimed at repealing the plates, but instead has called for a second legislative vote next year. The bill aims to eliminate special Sons of Confederate Veterans and Gen. Robert E. Lee license plates. Governor Youngkin has also amended the bill, directing the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to study the impact of plate expirations on state revenue. It is viewed by some as another attempt to eliminate historical symbols and history here in Virginia.
