PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Bills to make license plates for three non-profit organizations available to Rhode Island drivers will be voted on by the General Assembly on Thursday.

If the vote passes then drivers can order plates with $20 of each order going to the Atlantic Shark Institute, Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse, or Beavertail Lighthouse Museum Association.

Each special plate will have to have at least 600 orders for production to start. All orders will cost a total of $40 extra on top of standard registration fees.

The plates would be available starting in late December, should the vote pass.
