ATLANTA (WTOC) – State Representative Jesse Petrea (R-GA District 166) has announced the final designs for a license plate incorporating the Tybee Island Lighthouse, according to a statement from the Georgia House of Representatives.
Earlier this year, Representative Petrea introduced House Bill 203 calling for the creation of a license plate design featuring the Tybee Island Lighthouse. If the bill passes, the sale of the license plate would benefit the Tybee Island Historical Society. The historical society is tracking license plate pre-orders. For the bill to pass, 1,000 license plates must be pre-ordered.
“The Tybee Island Historical Society helps protect and maintain one of our most treasured Georgia coastal treasures, the Tybee Island Lighthouse and Museum,” Petrea said in a statement. “I encourage all Georgians to support the future of the historic society and help make this special license plate a reality by voting for a final design and pre-ordering their own license plate by September 1.”
The Tybee Island Historical Society also counts the votes for the most popular design. Votes can be cast until September 1, 2021, and you can vote for your preference here.
