Plate Replicates the Special Military-Related License Plates for Passenger Vehicles

Frankfort, KY: Lieutenant Governor Steve Pence joined legislators and Kentucky Motorcycle Association members in the Capitol Rotunda today to unveil the new motorcycle license plate.  The plate is an exact replication of the current special military-related license plates for passenger vehicles, but it is conformed to meet the license plate requirements for motorcycles.

"I am honored to unveil this license plate as both a veteran and motorcycle enthusiast," said Lieutenant Governor Pence. "This plate is a great way to honor those who have served and/or continue to serve in the Armed Forces.  My thoughts and prayers go out to our brave men and women preserving freedom around the world."

Attending today's ceremony included Senator Dan Seum (R-Louisville), Representative Don Pasley (D-Winchester), Motor Vehicle Regulation Commissioner Roy Mundy, Reverend John Crittenden and members of the Kentucky National Guard.  Lieutenant Governor Pence presented Kentucky Motorcycle Association member David Newman with the first motorcycle military-related license plate.

Recent legislation resulting from the 2004 Regular Session has made this event possible.  House Bill 92 amends KRS 186.041 and KRS 186.050 to allow motorcycles to display the special military-related license plates.  House Bill 92 was sponsored by Representative Pasley and signed into law by Governor Ernie Fletcher on April 2, 2004.  The new license plates for motorcycles will become available in January 2005.  For more information, please visit
