Virginia Breastfeeding License Plate

 DUE TO LACK OF SUPPORT, THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN TABLED.

VA Breastfeeding license plate

 

Help To Bring A Breastfeeding License Plate To Virginia!

WHAT: We are collecting applications to begin the legislative process necessary to have the plate be adopted by the DMV and go into production.  In order for this process to begin, we must collect 450 pre-paid applications by November 2016.  After this date, our sponsor, Delegate Jay Leftwich of Chesapeake, can take our bill to the 2016 General Assembly, which begins in January 2017.

HOW: In January 2017 our license plate legislation is submitted by our Delegate Sponsor to the General Assembly for consideration.  After filing, it would first need to be favorably passed out of the transportation committee before being brought before the General Assembly at-large. Once our license plate bill is passed, it moves on to the Governor for signing. Only after the Governor signs our bill, hopefully by the summer of 2016 at the latest, will the applications (and money) be submitted to DMV so that our plate can be produced.  We would then begin to see this plate on cars in 2018 or perhaps late 2017 if things moved very quickly.  But, none of this happens unless we get 450 prepaid applications.  If our efforts fail, your money will be refunded.

NOTE: It is important to understand that even though you filled out an application for this plate, you must continue to keep your registration renewals current with DMV.

INSTRUCTIONS: Helping to make Virginia’s Breastfeeding License Plate a Reality

  • All applicants must have a vehicle currently licensed in the state of Virginia.
  • APPLICATION: Here is the official DMV application specifically for the Virginia Breastfeeding License Plate.  Do not mail to DMV. Fill out the form completely, including the signatures of all owners of the car. To fill out the form completely, you will need the following at hand: Owner(s) name(s), current plate number, current plate type, current plate expiration date, Vehicle Title Number, and VIN (vehicle identification number). These can be found on your current vehicle registration card. If there is more than one owner, both co-owners must sign the form.
  • COST: The VA Breastfeeding Task Force will need $10 if you are applying for standard plates and $20 if you are applying for personalized plates. (A personalized plate is one on which you have requested a special word or letter/number sequence other than what DMV ordinarily assigns.)  This is the amount that the VA Breastfeeding Task Force will need to submit to DMV at the completion of the legislative process so that the plates can go into production.  We will hold these funds until that time and your money will be refunded if our legislative effort fails.
  • SEND YOUR APPLICATION AND MONEY: Mail your completed and signed application and your check to the Virginia Breastfeeding Task Force at: PO Box 35379, Richmond, VA 23235.  Do not send the application directly to DMV. If you prefer, you may email your completed and signed application to the VABFTF at vabftf@gmail.com.
  • PAYPAL: You can also use www.Paypal.com to send money, including credit cards, using the email address vabftf@gmail.com. Please note that because PayPal charges a fee for each transaction, you will need to add $2 to your payment when using this service, so submit either $11 for regular plates or $21 for specialized plates.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF VIRGINIA FAMILIES!

      It is important to understand that the pre-paid orders are required before we can take our plate to the legislature. Our bill will need to be passed by the legislature and signed by the governor before the plates can actually go into production. If our design passes General Assembly, it would be on your car in 2016.

      We can make this available only if we collect enough pre-paid applications for our design to be able to progress to the legislature for their approval. Please join us.

      Thank you for your interest. We are excited to report that we are accepting pre-paid applications now through the website at http://vabreastfeeding.org/vas-breastfeeding-license-plate/. Please join us. Time is short. Let’s start the process of making this plate a reality. This is the first step in getting the plate into production. The DMV requires that new special plates present 450 prepaid applications before they can work their way through the legislature and be signed by the governor. Then, the plate goes into production. It’s a long process, but it will only happen if we get the 450 prepaid applications. If we don’t meet the goal, your money will be fully refunded. Please consider helping us meet the goal.

    Why is this being forced in at the last second? I love the plate and I think it’s a real disappointment that the Breastfeeding Task Force didn’t get this together earlier. Slightly over week to get 450 people to pay for the plate ahead of time over a holiday? It’s a shame this isn’t being held off on until the next session.

    We’re sorry this appears last minute. Task Force members have actually been working on getting this sponsored for several years. We gained some momentum with the publicity this got earlier in the Fall. Just last Friday, a sponsor came forward and we felt we needed to press forward. Over the past few years several hundred people have indicated an interest in seeing the plate become a reality.
