Boy Scout License Plate to Commemorate the Boy Scouts’ Centennial
Governor Bill Ritter signed HB-1151 into law on June 5, 2008 and the new Boy Scout License Plate is officially available at all Colorado Department of Revenue locations. The license plate was designed in honor of the Boy Scouts of America, commemorating 100 years of Scouting in the United States as the centennial approaches in 2010.
“This is very exciting for the Denver Boy Scouts and for the community. As we celebrate 100 years of the Boy Scouts of America, we take great pride in our past accomplishments and rich history, and we look forward to a bright future of continuing scouting’s contributions to its members, families and the community. We have a long tradition of leadership development in this country and in Colorado. Now Coloradans can show their pride and support right on their bumper,” said John Cabeza, the Denver Boy Scouts Scout Executive/CEO.
The Boy Scouts, led by the Denver Area Council, had gathered more than 3,000 signatures in early 2008 in support of the special license plate. Representative Kent Lambert sponsored HB-1151 in the House, while Senator Dave Schulteis sponsored the bill in the Senate. Both are Eagle Scouts and they are joined by four other Eagle Scouts in the Colorado General Assembly including: Representative Terrance Carroll, Representative Paul Weissmann, Representative Larry Liston and Senator John Morse.
