In Utah, "In God We Trust" License Plate Now Costs Less

As reported by the Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Governor Gary Herbert on Monday signed into law H.B. 127 (full text), making the state's "In God We Trust" license plates available for the standard licence plate fee. The law removes the prior $5 specialty plate surcharge for this plate design. Three plate designs are now available for the standard fee.  In signing the bill, Herbert referred to Utah's creation by people seeking refuge from religious persecution. As reported on the Governor's blog, he added: "Our nation’s motto bears extra importance at a time when free worship of God and religious rights are being challenged."
