The Department of Motor Vehicles said Thursday the plate's design has a stain-glass window with a cross on the left side and the words "I Believe" across the top.

The agency will begin making the plates after it gets at least 400 prepaid applications or if a sponsoring organization makes a deposit of $4,000 by May 1.

People can pay $5 in an online transaction to reserve the plate. "I Believe" plate holders also would have to pay the regular annual vehicle registration fee of $24.

A group that advocates separation of church and state filed a federal lawsuit in June to block the plates.

Where's the Jewish plate? Or

Where's the Jewish plate? Or the Islam plate? It's not fair to recognize one religion and not the others.

opus, the state has to

opus, the state has to sanction license plates and it is the state that sells them. You are stuck with the choices they offer you. You can't just buy one at a Wal-Mart.

If you check it out, you will

If you check it out, you will find that a group of individuals secured enough prepaid applications (at least 400) then the state approved the plates.
