Grizzlies license plate petition hits 1,000 supporters | News
MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - Grizzlies fans in Tennessee push to celebrate the Grizzlies' incredible season with a special license plate.
The online petition argues that the State of Tennessee provides access to a Nashville Predators and a Tennessee Titans specialty license plate. The state does not have an option for the Memphis Grizzlies.
The petition hit more than 1,000 supporters as of Wednesday morning. The petition started last week. It asks for 1,500 supporters.
According to its change.org page, revenue generated from this specialty plate could be used to continue the charitable efforts of Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation, the Grizzlies House, or St. Jude.
In order to request a specialty license plate from the State of Tennessee, the organization must contact their state senator or representative to sponsor the proposed plate so it may be introduced into legislation.
One the bill passes, the organization is notified. A packet informs the organization that they will be responsible for securing a minimum of 1,000 plate orders. In addition, they will design the artwork and collect money for the plate.
