BOISE – State lawmakers are working on a ‘pet-friendly license plate’ bill.

If passed, specialty plates will be made with a dog on the plate and the proceeds from those plates will go towards animal shelters.

The ‘pet-friendly license plate’ bill has already passed the House and is on its way to the Senate next week.

State Democratic Senator Mark Nye says this is his fifth session and they have seen the fewest number of bills in the past five years.

“I think the elephant in the room is ‘Medicaid Expansion’ and a few members are taking steps that may delay or even potentially derail ‘Medicaid Expansion,” says Democratic Senator Mark Nye.

Senator Nye says the federal government is paying 90 percent of the cost and it’s time to honor the people’s vote and move on.
