Tennessee Lawmakers Fighting To Add "In God We Trust" To License Plates

Tennessee lawmakers are determined to add the Christian phrase "In God We Trust" to their state's licence plates, reports Forward. The bill, proposed by Representatives Bill Sanderson and Paul Bailey, would require all Tennessee license plates to carry the phrase.

However, Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery III has issued a legal opinion which states that this action would violate the constitutions of the United States and Tennessee. He noted that giving drivers the option to get a plate with the phrase on it would be “constitutionally defensible.”

The estimated cost for the state to make this change is approximately $20 million.
