Montgomery, Ala. – Thanks to a 2016 law sponsored by Senator Gerald Dial (R-Lineville) and Representative Margie Wilcox (R-Mobile), Alabamians can now purchase a distinctive boat license sticker, similar to specialty motor vehicle tags. The boat license stickers cost an additional $50 over standard boat license tags, with $25 going to fund state parks and $25 going to the sponsoring organization of a particular specialty sticker.
“Back in 2016, Governor Bentley’s administration chose to close five state parks due to a budget crunch. Representative Wilcox and I decided we had to find an innovative way to increase money for the state parks, and there’s obviously a lot of passionate college sports fans out there who would love to have a Troy or Auburn sticker on their boats and at the same time, support Alabama’s parks,” Dial remarked.
Any specialty motor vehicle tag is also available as a distinctive boat sticker.
“There are over forty different specialty tags that support everything from Alabama’s cattlemen to the Fraternal Order of Police to pro-life groups. These are wonderful organizations, and I am glad that Alabamians can show their civic spirit while also supporting Alabama’s twenty-two state parks,” Wilcox said.
Gerald Dial represents District 13 in the Alabama State Senate, which includes all or parts of Chambers, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, Lee, and Randolph Counties.
Margie Wilcox represents District 104 in the Alabama House of Representatives, which includes Mobile, Theodore, and Tilman’s Corner.
