Gov. Shumlin issues executive order allowing Vermonters to continue displaying Vermont Strong license plate

Gov. Peter Shumlin issued an executive order June 2 to allow Vermonters to continue to display the Vermont Strong license plate. The exemption allowing Vermonters to display the plate on the front of their vehicle was slated to expire June 30, 2016.

“These plates remind us of how our state pulled together in the wake of Irene to rebuild stronger than the storm found us,” Gov. Shumlin said. “The plate has become a symbol of pride for many Vermonters, myself included, and I want ensure people can continue to display them.”

The executive order will remain in effect until a new governor rescinds it or the legislature revisits the issue.
