CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation is looking into the idea of offering state license plates that celebrate Yellowstone National Park.

WYDOT Director Bill Panos told Transportation Commission members that a Yellowstone plate is in the early development stage and the agency is still researching the idea.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that the Wyoming Legislature would have to pass a law allowing the plate to be produced.

Panos said the department is looking into what the plate would cost to produce and how to make sure those costs are covered.

Besides being another plate option for drivers, Panos said the Yellowstone plate would help solidify the park's association with the state of Wyoming.
