CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada Senate committee has passed a bill authorizing special license plates showing support for the 2nd Amendment.
The Senate Transportation Committee voted unanimously Thursday to pass SB229, which is sponsored by Republican Sen. Don Gustavson. It now heads for a vote on the Senate floor.
The proposed license plate design features a frontiersman with a gun and the words "Battle Born" and "Protect the Second Amendment." It would cost more than the standard Nevada license plate design.
Proceeds from sales of the plate would benefit the Nevada Firearms Commission. The committee added an amendment specifying that the money must be used for gun training or gun safety education.
Republican Committee Chair Scott Hammond said he didn't want the funds to be funneled to political activities.
