OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Five more organizations have been added to the list of clubs and groups that can sponsor specialty vehicle license tags in Oklahoma.

Earlier this year, state lawmakers agreed to add The March of Dimes to the specialty tag list as well as the Oklahoma Association for the Deaf, the Oklahoma City Zoo, Oklahoma Quarter Horse and Support Our Troops.

The tags would cost $35 each. A portion of the fee would go to each group. But before any specialty tag can be manufactured, the Oklahoma Tax Commission must have 100 prepaid applications on file. The deadline is December 31st.

If a group fails to get the 100 required signatures, all application fees are refunded. If a group succeeds in reaching the goal, it will take six to eight months to produce the tags.
