A bill was signed into law by Governor Jindal in June 2013 to create a special license plate for Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation. Representative Stephen Ortego co-authored the bill along with Senator Karen Carter Peterson and was instrumental in helping to get it passed.
LCEF is encouraging all Louisiana artists to submit an original design that best expresses Louisiana's unique culture to feature on the new license plate. Whether the focus is art, music, food, architecture, or some combination, the design should speak to our state's vibrant heritage and culture.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, August 9, 2013.
