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.
