A State of Vision licence plate

Florida's Newest License Plate

Benefiting Blind & Visually Impaired Floridians

Hot off the metal press and loaded on trucks, the new “A State of Vision” specialty license plates have rolled out of Tallahassee to license tag agencies all across Florida on January 26th, 2007.

Benefiting blind and visually impaired Floridians through the services of local nonprofit agencies statewide, the new “A State of Vision” specialty license plates are expected to be a hot seller.

Florida House of Representatives’ Speaker pro Tempore Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala), who sponsored legislation creating the “A State of Vision” specialty license tag said: “This was the very first project of the Florida Legislature’s new Vision Caucus; and it will help thousands of Floridians with vision loss. My wife and I will proudly display one of these tags on our car.”

Robert Kelly, Executive Director of the Conklin Centers, shared his enthusiastic support for the new license plate: “Thousands of Floridians with limited vision or blindness will have a brighter future because of the ‘A State of Vision’ license tag. I hope everyone buys one with that goal in mind.”

How do I get this new license tag?
Take your current tag to your local tag agency and purchase the new tag.

Do I have to wait until my tag's annual renewal?
No. In fact, you will get a credit for all unused time on your current tag.

How much does it cost?
The normal license plate fees apply, plus $25 which benefits
blind & visually impaired Floridians.

Who gets the $25 and how does it benefit the blind?
The Florida Association of Agencies Serving the Blind (FAASB),
a statewide nonprofit organization, receives the $25.
It is distributed among 14 member agencies
to be used for hands-on "direct support services"
to blind and visually impaired Floridians throughout the state.
The Conklin Center has been a member of FAASB since 1979.
