FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Secretary of State Reminds Mainers that the World Acadian Congress Commemorative License Plate is Now Available
AUGUSTA - Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap would like to remind Maine drivers that the new commemorative license plate authorized by the State for the 2014 World Acadian Congress is currently available for purchase. This is the first commemorative plate produced by the State of Maine since the United States celebrated its Bicentennial in 1976.
The Maine Credit Union League partnered with the State of Maine and World Acadian Congress to make the license plates available for sale at participating credit unions throughout Maine. For a complete list of locations please go to www.mainecul.org.
A commemorative license plate is not the same as the specialty license plates issued by the state to support various causes. It does not have any numbers/letters on its face and cannot replace the legally issued plates. The legislation passed by state lawmakers will allow for the CMA plate to be placed over the front registration plate of the vehicle until they expire in December 2015. The existing registration plate on the back of the vehicle must remain on and visible.
