Florida lawmakers have introduced House Bill 1359 – a bill that allows Florida drivers to own a UCF National Champions 2017 specialty license plate.
“Collegiate license plates must bear the colors and design approved by the department as appropriate for each state and independent university,” the bill says.
“The word ‘Florida’ must be stamped across the bottom of the plate in small letters, except for the University of Central Florida specialty license plate, which shall have ‘2017 National Champions’ stamped across the bottom of the plate.”
Governor Rick Scott signed and sealed a proclamation declaring the Knights national champions in Florida in the days following UCF’s victory over Auburn in the Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl.
Florida representatives from South Florida to Central Florida and now to North Florida have also pushed for the Knights to claim and keep their championship title.
We spoke to Representative Mike Miller on UCF Football and his letter to the President. Check out the video in the article below.
