Legislation to create license plates for the Seahawks and Sounders FC has passed in the Washington State Senate, and is now in the House of Representatives.

A bill to create personalized plates for each sports team  is now scheduled before the House Transportation Committee for March 14.

When Seahawks coach Pete Carroll visited the Capitol on Wednesday to generate funding for his A Better Seattle program, Lt. Governor Owen had mentioned that the goal was to have the plates available by January 2014.

‘We’ve got a Mariners plate, we’ve got these other plates. Why don’t we have a Seahawks and a Sounders plate? We would like to have one,” Owen said.

Fans will be able to show their support for the Seahawks and Sounders, while also supporting some worthwhile organizations, including InvestED , which helps secondary students with resources they might not have for sports and other programs; and Washington State Mentors, which provides grants for mentoring students.
