    Hey Brothers,
    Did you guys see this about Masonic license plates?

    Texas Masonic License Plates:
    THE TEXAS MASONIC LICENSE PLATE is scheduled to go on to the web for
    public comment later this month (probably January 21-31). It will only be
    there for comment for only 10 days. The Department of Motor Vehicles will
    notify us of the link for public comment when it becomes available and we
    need to click on and show our support for the Texas Masonic License plate.
    Please notify all your members that are on your email list and at
    your meetings to check their email daily for notice of the link to public
    comment. The greater the support the better chance we have of having the
    plate approved by the Department commission.
    Thanks for your support and watch for the link on the Grand Lodge of
    Texas Website.


    I think this is pretty cool! I've wanted a vanity plate for awhile and now I can justify the money to get one.

    I think this is a great move. I can't wait to see what the design will be.

    Colorado use to have plates with the square and compass and the words "Masonic family" but they were discontinued in 2008..

    I am delighted to see this development. (I am not a Texas Mason). Texas is a big state, masonically, and I hope that other states will follow this example. Florida and Alabama do not yet have a Masonic plate. Maybe the Lone Star State, getting a plate, will be the 'push' that gets more states to follow.

    SMIB!

    These are seriously nice. I am a ea but would like to keep myself motivated and on track. These could help remind me who I am, and what i am going to accomplish. Would it be wrong to get these before you are actually a raised mm

    I have the same question. My first reaction is a resounding no.

    If you can defend it, than you can own it!

    Would you wear a Square and Compass with both points in front of the square before being raised?

    I'm an FC. After my EA degree, I was asked not to wear any masonic emblems until I was a Master. I suppose I could get an FC ring, but seriously.. not worth the bother for the short amount of time.

    In any case, the act for these plates says that it will take effect September 1, 2011. Its highly possible that you will be raised by that date.

    I don't know that I care for the design that much... the money raised by the State for the plates also would only go to the General Revenue fund, and I don't know that I care for that either. They at the very least could designate the funds towards public education in Texas...

    I could be entirely wrong, but I thought they said at GL that some of the revenue would come back into GL. I know the Bill states it is to go into the state general revenue, but they may be an additional Bill or it may have been modified.

    Is it just me or does the SC look like it is on the FC?
