HELENA - More than 80 specialty license plates have been revoked under a new rule in Montana.
A list from the state Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) includes 85 plates from nonprofits and other organizations that are no longer available to drivers.
In 2019, the Montana Legislature approved a plan to discontinue less popular plates.
Starting this year, plates that have been chosen by fewer than 400 drivers will be discontinued.
Proceeds from specialty plates support charities. A Missoula animal shelter shared the letter it received from the state on Facebook.
"We received some disappointing news this morning. We lost our License Plates...thank you all for the valued and continued support," wrote Animeals No-Kill Adoption Center.
MVD will review plate sales and notify sponsors annually.
