The Commissioner of Agriculture is supporting a new license plate which will raise money for the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. They have been attempting to create a new plate since 2007. The new plate design was inspired by a painting by John Paul “Jack” Stain. The painting depicts a Confederate Soldier carrying the Texas Wigfall Flag which has been viewed as a non-offensive option to the Confederate Flag that was originally submitted in the past .They estimate 1,000 plates will be sold within the first year. A portion of the sales will go to the Department of Agriculture.
