South Carolina allows you to choose from many speciality license plates for your vehicle.
Each plate has a certain additional fee and the description on the DMV website explains where some of the fee money may be going.
For example, here’s part of the description for the plate for Anderson College:
Anderson College License Plates are $70.00 plus the registration fee. Forty dollars of the special plate fee will be sent to the specified school for scholarships…
As it turns out, the Secular Humanists of the Low Country have a plate of their own, too:
Here’s the description provided:
Although Secular Humanist of the Low Country is a membership based organization the “In Reason We Trust” plate is available to all SC residents. The fee for the plate is $30.00 every two years in additional to the regular registration fee. As a non-profit organization, the Secular Humanists of the Low Country do not receive any portion of the funds generated from the license plate sales.
Is it necessary to include that last sentence?
Before jumping to any conclusion about anti-atheist bias, you should know the plate for West Point includes the same line.
However, several license plates are for non-profit groups but do not include that sentence. In fact, other non-profit groups do receive a portion of the funds.
Anyone know why that is?
