TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Move over Gators and Seminoles. The Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers could be coming.
The Florida House could vote as soon as Friday on a bill (HB 1375) that includes the creation of University of Georgia and Auburn University specialty-license tags in Florida.
Bill sponsor James Grant, a Tampa Republican and Auburn graduate, included the Auburn tag in the measure.
The tag would include "War Eagle" -- a traditional battle cry of Auburn fans.
The University of Georgia tag was added Thursday in an amendment offered by Rep. Travis Cummings, R-Orange Park.
The overall bill would make a series of changes in the specialty-tag system.
