From the Ask Joe File a follow up tonight to a story we ran Tuesday about the new sesquicentennial license plates being made by a company in Oregon.
   Bill Clark wrote in asking why can't the 150th anniversary license plates be made at the prison like all the other plates ?

I checked with David Fierro with the Nevada DMV.  They oversee the license plate program.
The special anniversary plates feature a complicated design which includes embossed or raised lettering, the Battle Born logo, and white letters on a dark background.   Because of that combination, the state's usual vendor, 3M, said they wouldn't be able to design these plates, so the Governor's office and the DMV found another company,  Irwin Hodson, in Portland Oregon which is making them.
  They've already cranked out 8,500 of the new plates and they'll make more as needed.
  The cost is 33 dollars.  Part of that will cover the cost of the plate and the rest will go to the 150th anniversary committee which is planning for a year long celebration of Nevada's statehood.

Why are they made out of state? Maybe because O.J. Simpson is tired and wants to go home. After all he did win his parole hearing.

Are 3M plates made in the prison? Doesn't sound like it. Are any plates made in the prison these days?
