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. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
