New Nebraska plates

Nebraska's governor unveiled that state's new license plate design at a news conference this morning.  It's not big and red.  It's a basically gray background with "" in red letters at the top.  It was the most popular of four designs in an on-line voting contest.

Nebraska gets a new license plate design every six years. Iowa's current license plates were first issued in 1997. They have a mainly white background featuring a city to country landscape with a bit of blue sky at the top.  The letters and numbers are in blue. There are 34 different types of specialty plates available. 

Iowa tends to stick with a design for a long time.  The old green plates with white lettering were issued from 1979 to 1985. The bright blue plates with white lettering were issued from 1986 to 1996.
