Vietnam Veterans Still Waiting For License Plates

Vietnam veterans in Kansas are still waiting for the state to issue special license plates to honor them.
The plates were supposed to be available on Jan. 1, under a law passed by the 2010 Kansas Legislature.
Jeannine Koranda, spokeswoman for the state revenue department, says the plate design wasn't final until recently. And after 50 plates were distributed earlier this month, officials discovered that they did not have the sequential numbers required by law enforcement.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Koranda says corrections are being made but she doesn't know when the plates might be available to Vietnam veterans.
Jim Gregory of Wichita says he and many other Vietnam veterans are getting impatient waiting for the plates.
