Transportation Committee Approves Mountain Biking License Plate

I'm a little late on this one, but the House Transportation Committee late last week approved Idaho's proposed new special mountain biking license plate. Sales of the plate will help raise funds to maintain and expand public trails open to mountain biking around the state.

According to the state Department of Parks and Recreation, Idaho has more trails than any other state in the lower 48 states. While President, George W. Bush went mountain biking in Idaho with then-Gov. Dirk Kempthorne during his 2005 visit to the state.

The license plate bill now moves on to the full House.
