RENO, Nev. (AP) — A mobile museum and special license plate are among ideas being considered for a yearlong celebration of Nevada's 150th birthday.
The Nevada Sesquicentennial Planning Committee, at a meeting in Reno last week, said the $1.5 million bus tour could bring historical artifacts, texts and displays to all of the state's 17 counties.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports panel members plan to discuss funding for the celebration at a Dec. 14 meeting in Las Vegas.
Along with donations, they're planning a special license plate for Nevada's sesquicentennial to help fund the celebration.
Gov. Brian Sandoval says the seven-member committee will work with staff members to plan a year of events starting on Halloween 2013 and culminating on the big day Oct. 31, 2014.
