Tennessee Considering Bills to Authorize Church-Specific License Plates

The Tennessee General Assembly is currently considering bills that would permit the state to issue specialty vehicle license plates for a specific church, the Church of God in Christ. The bills were sponsored by two Memphis legislators. If passed, this would mark the first time a license plate has been allowed for a specific religious denomination.

If you have an opinion on whether states should offer specialty plates for churches and why or why not, consider e-mailing a brief (3-4 sentence) response to Hot Button at by May 6. They also request that responses include identifying information (e.g., name, home address and daytime/evening telephone numbers) so they can contact the authors of comments they want to publish.
