Just in time for the NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle has signed legislation giving Marquette University its own specialized license plate. State Sen. Jeff Plale and Rep. Pedro Colon sponsored the legislation.
Marquette alumni (like me), fans and friends can now order Wisconsin specialized license plates bearing the blue and gold Marquette monogram.
The plates should be available this fall. Those requesting the plates will pay a $15 one-time fee for the specialized plate, which can be used for 10 years.

You can, at the Marquette link posted, sign up to receive a courtesy e-mail when the plates are available for registration and purchase.
The Packer plate fees include an issuance fee of $15, plus an annual $25 tax-deductible contribution, in addition to the regular registration fee. The contribution goes toward maintenance and operating costs at Lambeau Field.
Marquette's information noted the one-time $15 fee, and -- of course -- you'll have to renewal your registration, as directed. More details on specialized plates are at the WisDOT link below blog.
i think you are incorrect about it being a $15 one time fee. I think you pay that every year when you renew your license.
