Amendment passes to stop Jayhawk license plate (AUDIO)

After legislation earlier in the session would allow license plates to have a University of Kansas Jayhawk on them, the House adopted a proposal to require out-of-state schools to get legislative approval to have a specialty Missouri license plate.

The new amendment’s sponsor, Columbia representative Stephen Webber, says especially after the events of the past year, he doesn’t want to see KU promoted on a Missouri plate. Webber points out, the KU-MU game represented a lot of revenue in the Kansas City area. He says if they teams will play again in the next year, he will file legislation to repeal his proposal.
