Produce a State of Tennessee Memphis Grizzlies specialty license plate

    1. Petition by

      Jason Patrick

UPDATE--Original goal was to collect 1000 signatures.  Currently we have received over 1500 signatures.  Due to overwhelming response, the petition will remain open for people to continue to express their support for this movement. 

On Wednesday May 29th, Senator Jim Kyle officially filed Senate Bill 1423 in support of creating a speciality license plate in Tennessee that represents the Memphis Grizzliestinyurl.com/nhbm8rk

Currently the State of Tennessee provides access to a Nashville Predators and a Tennessee Titans specialty license plate, but does not have an option for the Memphis Grizzlies. Fans of Memphis Grizzlies love to show support for the City of Memphis as well as the Memphis Grizzlies, and would love the opportunity to show additional support with the option to purchase a Memphis Grizzlies specialty license plate. Revenue generated from this specialty plate could be used to continue the charitable efforts of Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation, the Grizzlies House, or St. Jude.

Details on process for requesting a specialty license plate from the State of Tennessee:

Organizations desiring to establish a Cultural, Specialty Earmarked or New Specialty Earmarked license plate, as defined by Tenn. Code Ann. Title 55, Chapter 4, Part 2, must contact their state senator or representative to sponsor the proposed plate so it may be introduced into legislation.
Once the bill has passed, Revenue's Vehicle Services Division sends the sponsoring organization an instruction packet. This packet informs the organization the bill has passed and that the organization is now responsible for securing a minimum of 1,000 plate orders, collecting the money for each plate ($35 for the next available number and $70 for personalized), and designing the artwork.
An organization has one year from the date of the passage of the bill to complete the minimum requirements. If the organization does not meet the minimum requirements, the plate will be deemed obsolete or invalid.
For questions concerning this procedure please contact Debbie Minton at (615) 532-1135.

      The Grizzlies deserve this honor because they have brought positive attention and energy to the City by going to the Play-offs consecutive years. Additionally, this would give Memphians the opportunity to show city pride.

      The Grizzlies are our home team. They represent Memphis in so many positive ways. Each player on the team has done so much to give back to the community. We need to show them the love and support that they show us. The Memphis Grizzlies work so hard when they are on/off the court. I vote yes for the Grizzly license plate. 3 are already waiting to be purchased in my household. Be Blessed :)
