Small slogan, big gain

Idaho has a ton of special license plates for cars to commemorate this and that, but Sen. Kent Bailey, R-Hayden, may be the first to propose a special plate for motorcycles.

"I love firsts," Bailey chuckled.

Of course, there's not much room on the little motorcycle plate to say much. "Instead of 'Famous Potatoes,' it'll say 'Veteran' on the bottom," Bailey explained.

If his bill passes, Bailey expects the special plate to raise $21,000 from sales to help maintain Idaho's planned veterans cemetery, which is now in the works.
