The State House unanimously approved a bill that would allow a new specialty license plate reading "In God We Trust."  Representative John Payne of Dauphin County says he created the bill after someone living in his district sent him a photo of a plate in South Carolina with the words "In God We Trust."

"He suggested that, given Pennsylvania's rich religious history dating back to the Quakers and its status as the birthplace of the nation, it would be fitting for Pennsylvania to offer this specialty plate," Payne says.

House Bill 149 now heads to the Senate.

If enacted, PennDOT would offer the license plates for a $20 fee in addition to the regular vehicle registration fee.
