Bill to Create Special License Plates for Horses, The NJ State Animal, Clears Committee

Legislation sponsored by Senate Minority Leader Anthony M. Bucco that would authorize the creation of specialized license plates for New Jersey’s State animal was approved by the Senate Transportation Committee.

“Horses have played a vital role in shaping New Jersey’s rich history in farming, transportation, and sport,” said Bucco (R-25). “As portrayed on the seal of New Jersey, horses are a symbol of power and strength. This legislation would further honor our State Animal with a specialized license plate and provide residents with a unique way to celebrate and support their ongoing contributions to the Garden State.”

Senator Bucco’s amended bill, A-203/S-2884, authorizes the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) to create a specialized license plate that commemorates New Jersey’s State animal, the horse.

The bill also specifies that taxpayer money will not be used to create the new license plates.

Fees collected by the NJMVC for the State Animal license plates would be appropriated annually to the Department of Agriculture to support health and well-being programs for horses, as well as programs that provide therapeutic rides for individuals with special needs.
