ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia state lawmakers are weighing in on the war over vanity alumni license plates, now caught up in a Georgia-Florida rivalry.

A bill being introduced in the Legislature would stipulate that the state would only issue alumni tags for out-of-state schools if the other state returned the favor.

The bill comes amid news that an application for a Florida Gators state tag has been approved. Fans can plunk down $25 apiece to get the plates printed.

That irks state Senator Eric Johnson and state Representative Barry Fleming. They say it's near impossible to get a Georgia tag in Florida.
