OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A state senator is heading a task force seeking to redesign Oklahoma's license plate. Senator Clark Jolley of Edmond says the group plans to replace the Osage shield that's been on Oklahoma license plates for more than a decade with one of five new designs.

The task force on Tuesday selected the five designs from a list of more than two dozen prototypes. Among the five finalists are two different versions of a tag depicting the Guardian statue, which sits atop the State Capitol's dome. Another tag depicts a cowboy doing rope tricks.

There also are two variations of a tag depicting a statue of a Native American shooting an arrow into the sky, which stands in front of Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum.

Jolley says he hopes to have a new tag design available to the public in early 2009.
