Two Oklahoma Republican State Senators put forward a bill that would create specialty license plates that show off the president’s campaign slogans. Some analysts believe this license plate could be a violation of federal campaign finance law.
Senators Nathan Dahm and Marty Quinn wrote the legislation, which would create Oklahoma state license plates that read “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) and “Keep America Great” available for people to buy.
As of now, 98 styles are available for purchase for registered vehicles in Oklahoma. More than half of the proceeds go to nonpolitical causes and charities.
The proceeds from the “MAGA” and “Keep America Great” license plates won’t go directly to president Trump’s reelection campaign. However, they will be split among two veteran groups: The Warriors for Freedom Foundation and the Folds of Honor Foundation. Trump will still have a say in the license plate designs.
“The license plates shall be designed in consultation with the corporation or entity designated by Donald J. Trump for such purposes,” the bill details.
According to the Washington Post, the two senators have yet to submit the bill to the Federal Elections Commission for an advisory opinion. After all, this bill may be employing state resources to disseminate campaign materials for the president.
Although the money collected from the sale of the plates would not be diverted towards President Trump’s reelection campaign, some contend that it still breaks federal campaign finance laws if the state uses taxpayer dollars to make them. If such a bill were to pass, it would raise numerous free speech issues.
“These are political slogans,” stated Richard Briffault, a professor at Columbia Law School. “This has the look and feel of using state resources to support a political candidate, which seems improper . . . and possibly illegal.”
This bill is a piece of pro-Trump legislation state lawmakers will discuss when the statehouse gets together in February. Back in November, the same two senators introduced a bill that would rename a section of Route 66 the “President Donald Trump Highway.”

Boy Scouts File for Bankruptcy as a Result of Declining Membership and Sexual Abuse Lawsuits
On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, The Boy Scouts of America filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to stay running as thousands of sexual abuse claims from former members pile up against the youth organization in the courts.
The organization initiated its bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware on Tuesday morning, per court documents. Consequently, all civil suits filed against the youth organization will be suspended, according to a CNN report.
The organization will likely still have to pay victims throughout the bankruptcy proceedings, but it will not have to go through the arduous jury trial process in certain states.
.“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, announced in a statement Tuesday.
“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he continued.
Lawyers informed the Post that the Boy Scouts would have to make the bankruptcy go public in order to reach as many victims as possible.
