Petition to Provide Special License Plates to Volunteer First Responders Approved

The petition requires over 13,000 signatures by July 9

BISMARCK, N.D. — Supporters of providing specialized vehicle license plates at no charge for volunteer firefighters and other emergency responders can begin circulating petitions to try to bring the issue to voters.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger just approved the format of the petition.

Supporters need to gather and submit at least 13,452 valid signatures by July 9 to get a proposed measure on the November ballot.

The heads of a committee that is backing the measure says it’s a way to “recognize and honor emergency responders for what they are doing as volunteers.”
