Rhode Island gets a special Bruins license plate

Posted: Updated:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Add the Boston Bruins to the list of sports teams featured on special license plates in Rhode Island.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed legislation creating a special plate for the National Hockey League team.

The Bruins plates will cost $40 more than regular ones. The money will be split evenly between the state and the team's charitable foundation, which must use its share to benefit Rhode Island-based organizations.

At least 900 plates must be ordered for authorities to begin issuing them.

Officials say similar plates in Rhode Island for fans of the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots have proven popular.

Chafee also signed legislation creating a special plate for Olympic medal winners. That one has no additional registration charge.
