“Don’t Tread on Me” Tag
Alabamians can look for a saying popular with tea party groups to start showing up on license plates. “Don’t Tread on Me” is the saying and the rattlesnake is the emblem that will appear on at least 250 Alabama vehicles. The state Revenue Department confirms the Montgomery-based Foundation for Moral Law has succeeded in getting 250 paid orders for the tags. That's the number the Revenue Department requires for production. The foundation, started by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, sought the specialty tag to generate revenue. The tag costs $50, with $41.25 of that going to the foundation. Officials say the tag allows people to make a statement that they've had enough and want America to regain the spirit that made it great.
