Senator Ernie Chambers is one step away from creating special mountain lion conservation license plates in Nebraska.
Legislative Bill 474 passed through the Nebraska legislature today with a vote of 47-0. It is now sitting on the Governor's desk waiting to be signed into law. If the Governor approves, as soon as October 2016 Nebraska residents could apply for mountain lion conservation plates for their vehicles.
A fee of $5 will be charged for the special plates, and deposited into a new Game and Parks Commission Educational Fund. This money will be used "to provide youth education programs relating to wildlife conservation practices."
We are sending a letter to Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts asking him to please sign LB 474 into law. These license plates are a great way for residents to show their support for mountain lions and contribute financially to wildlife conservation programs.
What YOU Can Do
Please take a few minutes to contact Governor Ricketts and encourage him to sign LB 474. Let him know creating mountain lion conservation license plates is an all around win for residents, wildlife, and the Game and Parks Commission.
