Vermont Allows a John 3:16 Plate

Shawn Byrne has been in legal dispute for many years with the state of Vermont, fighting for the right to display a reference to one of the Bible's most famous passages on a vanity license plate, John 3:16. The state won't ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review a federal appeals court decision that said Byrne must be given the license plate "JN36TN." In the settlement, the state also agreed to pay Byrne's $150,000 legal fees and allow other Vermonters to have religious-themed license plates. []
