Alabama drivers will soon have the opportunity to have their own LSU license plate.  Webster Parish native and vice president of the Birmingham LSU Alumni Chapter Kenny Haynes decided to launch a campaign to get an LSU tag after seeing other out of state schools have their own special plate design.

“I started seeing Mississippi State tags, Ole Miss tags, Georgia tags, and so I just wondered and I said, ‘Well, we need an LSU tag in Alabama,'” said Haynes.

In Louisiana, a specialty tag design requires legislative approval, but in Alabama, the proposed design just needed 250 drivers to apply and prepay for the license plate.  Haynes says they hit that goal.

“Now the plate is going to be printed and will be available in about two to three months for not only that first 250 but for anyone else after that,” said Haynes.

Haynes admits the initial design is modest on school spirit.  In five years, the plate will come back up for approval and a redesign can be submitted. If over a thousand plates are in circulation, Haynes says they then can propose a full plate design.

“So, in other words, you can have here in Alabama just a plate by appearance looks purple and gold and maybe has a tiger eye on it or something like that, even though this plate looks pretty vanilla and plain,” said Haynes.
