DMV Pulls Salton Sea Plates


Last updated 5/18/2017 at 11:14am

Despite the desperate need for a long term campaign and funding, the response to the 'Salton Sea Licence Plate' campaign has garnered little public support.

Assemblyman Brian Nestande introduced the concept back in 2015 to help raise funds for the Salton Sea Authority, however the required number has failed to be sold and the DMV and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has halted sales of the "Save the Salton Sea" license plates.

7,500 pre-orders were required in an allotted two year period. People who did apply to get the specialty plates will be sent letters and refunded payments.
