Clemson University’s 2016 football national championship is another step closer to getting its own South Carolina license plate.
State senators last week passed a proposal by State Sen. Harvey Peeler, R-Cherokee, allowing the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to produce and sell the special plates.
The State newspaper reports that the plates would cost $70 along with the regular DMV registration fees. Scholarships at Clemson would be the beneficiary of any profits made from the sale of the special plates.
The “1” plate would be a very special and unique one reserved exclusively for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.
The legislation will now go to the South Carolina House, where it will most likely pass.
