Rep. Melissa Wintro, D-Boise, holds a mock up of the Idaho "pet friendly" license plate. Feb. 8, 2018
BOISE, Idaho - A bill creating a "pet friendly" license plate in Idaho has advanced out of the House Transportation & Defense Committee.
The funds collected from sales of the plate would be collected in a "Pet Lovers Fund" managed by the Idaho State Treasury.
At the direction of the Board of Directors of the Idaho Humane Society, money in the fund shall be used for the following purposes:
Start-up fees would be reimbursed to the Idaho Transportation Department by the plate's sponsoring organization. ITD receives $13 per plate sold to offset the cost to administer the program.
The bill now heads to General Orders to amend some language in the bill before making its way to the House floor for a vote.
