Diabetes Awareness License Plates

On July 18, 2013, the Governor signed into law House Bill 1815/Public Act 98-0096 sponsored by State Representative Tom Cross (R-Oswego); a new initiative to raise funds for diabetes research by authorizing the Secretary of State to design and issue special license plates promoting diabetes awareness.

However, the design and production of the Diabetes Research Specialty Plates cannot begin until the Secretary of State’s Office has received 1,500 requests from those interested in purchasing the plate.

"This new law will boost funding for diabetes research by allowing drivers to choose a special plate raising awareness of a disease that touches millions of families.”
