The Sons of Confederate Veterans report to have raised $60,000 and collected 30,000 signatures from Florida motorists in support of a proposed “Confederate Heritage” license plate—sufficient interest and funding to place the issue before the state legislature.

Backers are especially motivated to press the issue in 2007, the 200th anniversary of Robert E.

Lee’s birth.
