LAS CRUCES, N.M . (AP) - The latest specialty license plate in New Mexico will benefit the state's Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.
It features a silhouette of a windmill against a yellow, orange and red backdrop and is now available through the state's Motor Vehicle Division for all New Mexico residents.
The cost is $37 in addition to standard automobile registration fees, with $25 going to support educational programs at the Las Cruces museum.
Officials say the money raised will go toward the museum's Big Yellow School Bus Fund, a program developed in 2006 to help schools offset costs of a field trip to the museum. A school is typically charged $100 to $300 for each bus needed for a field trip.
