Religious plate proposals stall in Legislature

TALLAHASSEE — Things aren't looking good for either religious license plate design in the Florida Legislature.

Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, backpedaled on his proposed "Trinity" plate featuring an image of "his lord and savior Jesus Christ" with an amendment adopted Tuesday (on one bill where the plate appears) that states "the plate shall not include any religious image."

It's unclear what would now appear other than "Trinity."

Neither Siplin's design nor one by Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico, of a stained glass window with a cross, appear in House legislation. Ultimate approval appears unlikely.
