                        Section 320.08056(8)(a), Florida Statutes, requires the department to discontinue a specialty license plate if valid registrations for a plate fall below 1,000 for 12 consecutive months.  Our records indicate that the Corrections Foundation specialty license plate has not met the required criteria.

 

                        Therefore, effective December 1, 2009, the department will no longer issue or renew the Corrections Foundation license plate.  At the registered owner’s next renewal, we will replace a valid license plate with a regular license plate or another specialty license plate.  The department will apply a credit when it issues a new license plate.

 

                        Each county must mark the appropriate inventory range(s) obsolete, which will automatically transfer the range(s) to Bin 67.  Bin 67 is designated for each agency’s obsolete inventory.  Remember to remove these obsolete specialty license plates from your inventory so PRIDE can pick up when it makes future deliveries. 

 

                        We appreciate your continued cooperation.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Inventory Control Section at (850) 617-2809.
