Motor Vehicles Board Votes Down Controversial Confederate License Plate

Word out of Austin is that the Texas Board of Motor Vehicles voted down a proposal to begin issuing license plates featuring the flag of the Sons of the Confederate.

Senator Rodney Ellis issued this response immediately after the decision. Ellis opposed the license plates.  

“I am pleased the Board acknowledged that the Confederate battle flag is unworthy of the state’s honor.  The battle flag has become a symbol of repression and violence, not heritage.  It provokes feelings of fear and intimidation amongst far too many Texans, and the Board was right to deny it official approval with today’s decision,” said Senator Ellis.
