CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Transportation officials in Wyoming hope to create a license plate featuring Yellowstone National Park.

Bill Panos, director of the Wyoming Department of Transportation, says 97 percent of the park is within Wyoming, but the state has not done enough to associate itself with the tourist attraction. He notes that Montana has a specialty plate for Yellowstone.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/9v1Hs6 ) a legislative committee voted Monday to sponsor a bill creating the plate, sending it to the full Legislature for discussion in January.

Panos says Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead and U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi requested that the transportation department present a new Yellowstone-themed license plate to the Legislature.

The proposed plate features Old Faithful geyser shooting up between the state’s trademark bucking horse image and the standard letters and numbers.
