Michael Soboeiro: State plate slogans

July 16, 2013 

Pass the plate

In the flurry of recent bills considered at the state legislature, I am concerned that I missed one on updated and appropriate license plate slogans. I am eager to display a “War on the Poor” or “Last in Education” plate. Or, based on the recent New York Times editorial, “In Decline Since 2012” might best describe our state.

Could this legislation have been tacked onto a bill on river water purity and passed after midnight before a holiday?
