    I'm just curious about something that you stated. Who else is using masonic symbols, and which ones are they using? I had no idea...

    Well there are "irregular" Lodges in Texas. I personally have heard a number of over 10. I personally have met one person that was not Grand Lodge of Texas AF&AM or Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Texas F&AM but considered himself to be a Mason in Texas.

    Wasn't implying that anyone actually WAS using our symbols, just that we have no force of law that prevents any "Joe Blow" from declaring himself (or even herself) a Mason, and using one or all of our symbols in any way they choose. Fortunately, most people do the right thing most of the time, so we don't have a big problem with it and probably never will. That said, owls84 is right -- there are clandestine lodges out there.

    I've been told the Grand Lodge has begun the process of getting Masonic license plates! Kudos to all for spreading the word!

    His source is accurate, Don Keasler (GL Merchandise Committee) told me the same thing about 2 months ago.

    Does this mean there will be a resolution this year or do I just need to waltz down the street and see Bro. Raywood?

    Excuse my ignorance, but why would there need to be legislation on this? Could this not be considered just like a snazzy bolo tie? Why can't GL just pull the trigger on this?

    If fees are going back to GL in some way, I believe there would need to be legislation as to how those are taken care.

    Let me get this straight 103K memberships are out there. Expected 90K actual members when plural memberships are excluded. So 50K members decided to get a single plate for one of their cars. That is 1 million in revenue. Why do we have a budget problem?
