license plates

No Kansas Jayhawks will be appearing on Show-Me State license plates — at least unless Missouri lawmakers say it is OK.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon signed into law Thursday a broader higher education measure that would require state lawmakers to approve specialty license plates for colleges and universities. State lawmakers were seeking to impede possible efforts by fans to have the University of Kansas featured on a Missouri license plate.

Language that would ban the creation of a Kansas Jayhawks specialty license plate in Missouri is on its way to Governor Jay Nixon.
