OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin says the state has signed a vehicle tag compact with the Choctaw Nation that will establish how Oklahoma and the tribe will work together to issue Choctaw vehicle tags.

The compact was signed during last weekend’s Choctaw Nation Labor Day Festival.

Under the agreement, Choctaw citizens who want to purchase a Choctaw tag may go to a state tag agent and present their citizenship card. They will pay the same fees and taxes that a nontribal person would to complete the same transaction.

The tribe plans to give its citizens who purchase a Choctaw tag a 20 percent rebate on licensing, registration, registration renewal and payment of excise taxes.

The Choctaw Nation will design the tag; the state will manufacture and distribute them.
