AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - More than 22,000 people have signed petitions against a proposed Confederate flag license plate for Texas.
The Austin American-Statesman reports the petitions were offered Wednesday in Austin.
The governing board of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles could decide on the plate in November. Board members had no comment Wednesday.
The specialty plate has been proposed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which is an ancestral history group. Supporters have also raised free speech issues.
