House Bill 1339, a proposal for a Denver Broncos specialty license plate, was introduced in the House of Representatives Thursday.
If approved by the Colorado Legislature, the Denver Broncos specialty license plates would be available beginning Jan. 1, 2007.
All donations generated by the Broncos license plate program would be used to support Denver Broncos Charities.
The Denver Broncos and Denver Broncos Charities are working with lawmakers to provide fans a way to show their pride and support for the Broncos as well as to generate funds to support Denver Broncos Charities’ youth, health and hunger initiatives.
“We want to give our great fans in Colorado a chance to show their support for the Broncos,” Broncos Vice President of Marketing Greg Carney said. “A Broncos specialty license plate displays pride in the team while helping Denver Broncos Charities make a difference in various initiatives within the state.”
In a bipartisan effort, Assistant House Majority Leader Michael Garcia, D-Aurora, and State Senator Nancy Spence, R-Centennial, will sponsor the bill.
"The Broncos plate is a winner for everyone,” Rep. Garcia said. “We get extra money to support these important charities that benefit our communities and at the same time Broncos fans can show their support for their favorite football team.”
“Broncos charities are designed to make positive impacts on Colorado’s youth – an effort every Coloradan can support,” Sen. Spence said. “To be able to support these charitable organizations and show our pride in the football team we love is a unique opportunity and partnership we can’t pass up.”
All Colorado residents who make a $30 minimum donation to Denver Broncos Charities will be eligible to purchase Denver Broncos specialty license plates.
Denver Broncos Charities will issue a certificate confirming the donation has been received. In order to receive the Broncos specialty license plate from the county motor vehicle office, an individual must present the certificate, pay a $25 special interest plate fee required by the state, and pay any other registration taxes and fees.
