“In God We Trust” License Plate Bill

TN State Rep. Bill Sanderson just filed a bill that would require all standard license plates across his state to bear the slogan “In God We Trust.”

The HB 0026 summary states:

Motor Vehicles, Titling and Registration – As introduced, requires all license plates to bear the language “In God We Trust” upon the existing inventory of the registration plates in that particular plate category being utilized by the department of revenue. – Amends TCA Title 55, Chapter 4.

When asked why he is filing legislation to insert religious text onto license plates, Sanderson responded, “We thought it would be a move in the right direction.”
