Sasquatch found... on Washington license plates? Maybe

Posted: Updated:
OLYMPIA, Wash. -

Washington has many specialty license plates recognizing the military, colleges, sports teams, hobbies, and organizations. A few lawmakers want to add one more specialty plate to the mix: Bigfoot. 

Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, is proposing to put Sasquatch on license plates in Washington next year, which the proceeds going to Washington's public parks. 

Under the bill, license plates bearing “a symbol or artwork recognizing the cultural significance of Sasquatch in Washington history and folklore” would be sold starting in 2019.

The cost would be $40, plus regular fees related to issuance of new plates, with $28 of the total going to Washington State Parks. After the first year, the cost to keep the license plate is $30 in addition to tab renewal fees, with $28 going to the agency.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has ignited a firestorm of criticism and charges that he is politicizing the military by faulting a war hero for not capturing al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden sooner. Former CIA director Leon Panetta said Trump owed an apology to retired Adm. William McRaven, who had said Trump's assertion that the news media was the "enemy of the people" was "the greatest threat to democracy" in his lifetime.
