Starting in January, the Alaska DMV is going to allow permanent registrations for passenger vehicles and non-commercial trailers eight years or older. This is part of House Bill 19.
For collectors, this will mean a general reduction in the number of plates issued. For local governments, it also means a reduction of funding, so it's an opt-in program on a city-by-city basis and the city can also impose a separate tax.
Subtle item in the law not mentioned in the article: It would also bring back emissions inspection for these vehicles.
An interesting statistic from the article: the average age of a car in Alaska is 13 years!

The proposed new Alaskan license plates are all "special request" plates, and include:
* United States flag "In God We Trust" plates.
* Lao veteran plates (for US military service in Laos from February 28, 1961, and May 15, 1975).
* Plates commemorating the National Rifle Association.
* Breast cancer awareness plates.
* "Choose Life" plates.
* "Pro-Family, Pro-Choice" plates.

No real surprises, though I was pleased to see that there is a variety of people who review submissions.
Always good to see Alaskan plates in the press.
