California to Offer Snoopy License Plates?

Well, maybe ...

There is a movement on to put PEANUTS' Snoopy on California license plates. The official site, with photos of mock-up plates (like the one above) is here.

Now there is a bill, signed by Governor Brown, that may put this all in action. The press release states:

(Santa Cruz, CA) -- On Saturday, October 5, 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed Assembly Bill 482 "California Cultural and Historical Endowment" by Assemblymember Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego). The bill moves the California Cultural and Historical Endowment (CCHE) from the State Library to the Natural Resources Agency and lays the foundation to launch a Snoopy special interest license plate to support California museums. 
A campaign to put the beloved, comic beagle on license plates in California, and help the state's museums at the same time, has been underway for several years. Over 10,000 Californians have already expressed interest in purchasing a Snoopy special interest license plate by completing an online form A statewide marketing campaign will be launched soon to pre-sell Snoopy license plates and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin issuing the plates upon receipt of 7,500 paid applications.

The rest is here.
