Post reader, first responder team up to pay bond for NY 9/11 license plate rollout

New York state will get 9/11 commemorative license plates after a snafu delayed the design and production of plates. Fees from the plates will fund scholarships.

A fee of $120.00 was needed, which will be split between lower Manhattan businessman Neil Pedersen and activist John Feal, writes Susan Edelman of the New York Post. 

The Department of Motor Vehicles claimed that license plates could not be designed or produced without selling 200 plates or having a fee of $6,000, but they did nothing to sell plates or raise funds.

Thirteen  states already have license plates commemorating those killed in the terrorist attacks.
