"I was proud to sign legislation in 2014 that added the United States National Motto, "In God We Trust," to the Mississippi State Seal. Today, I am equally delighted to announce that it will adorn our new Mississippi license plates. They will be available starting in January 2019."

Associate Revenue Commissioner Kathy Waterbury says the plates will also switch to a golden tan color and include an extra numeral.

She says the changes were made to help law enforcement distinguish between the old and new plates.

Approval for the new design came this week from the license plate commission that is made up of the governor, attorney general, treasurer and revenue commissioner.
