A bill that would allow non-profit groups to place decals on Iowa license plates has passed the Iowa Senate.

Senate File 371 would let qualifying organizations have specialty license plates without reaching a minimum number of applications in a one year period, as is current law. The decal would still have to be approved by the Iowa Department of Transportation.

Qualifying organizations must be non-profit, tax exempt and serve the community; have at least 200 members and submit a color copy of the decal design for approval. Production of the decals will be left to the organizations with approved decal designs.

The legislation must still be passed in the House before taking effect.
