Something new that goes with wine

State Rep. Kelly Chambers holds one of the newly minted specialty license plates that support Washington’s wine and tourism industries.

State Rep. Kelly Chambers is the prime sponsor of legislation creating the placards that cost $40 apiece and feature a scenic landscape of Washington wine country.

Proceeds from the initial sales of each plate and their $30 renewal fee will go into state coffers to promote the tourism industry statewide, including “small mom-and-pop shops, local restaurants, hospitality businesses, and retail businesses, many of which sell Washington wines,” Chambers said.

Nearly 4,000 Washingtonians signed a petition calling for the new specialty license plates, according to Chambers, who represents the 25th Legislative District in Pierce County.
