(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Dennis Udink is running out of options to get a personalized license plate featuring his last name.
The Price resident's appeal to the state Tax Commissiong and Legislature's Rules Committee went about as well as the original request -- it was shot down.
The committee decision came last week. Tax Commissioner Bruce Johnson defended the decision to reject "UDINK" as a vulgar or offensive plate slogan. Johnson also stood by the regulations and process that led to the rejection.
Udink says he can see the committee's point of view. But he doesn't feel his last name should meet the criteria to keep it off a license plate.
