Check out this beautiful Electric Lineman License Plate from DMV! By purchasing one, you're honoring all the linemen that work so hard to keep the lights on. To get one of these license plates for yourself (if you didn't pre-order one), they will be available online at the DMV on April 3rd. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the plates helps the Education Scholarship Fund of the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (publisher of Cooperative Living magazine), which awards college/trade school scholarships to students from member cooperatives. Feel free to tag people in this post or share with your friends, so we can get the word out about this great new license plate!THE WAIT IS OVER!! Moments ago we received this email from DMV:
"We will be processing the preorder applications this week and the plates will hit the mail by next week. The estimated full implementation date is 4/3/19."
Another big thank you to Terry Austin for Delegate for carrying the bill that made this a reality. Also - thank you to Dathie Washington for coordinating the pre-orders. If you have questions about your plate, please message her.
NOTE: If you have not pre-ordered your license plate, they will be available online at DMV on April 3rd. Thank you to everyone for your support (and patience) throughout this process. ... See MoreSee Less
Agriculture is the Commonwealth’s largest industry. Although fewer Americans are raised on farms today than 50 years ago, it’s important for Virginians to be aware of our food, fiber and natural resource systems and appreciate the value of agriculture in our daily lives. According to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the industry has an economic impact of $70 billion annually and provides more than 334,000 jobs in the Commonwealth.
