Residents of South Carolina can now express their support for Israel through their license plates.

On June 2, Governor Nikki Haley signed into law an act that permits the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles to issue license plates with the message "South Carolina Stands With Israel," The Jewish Press reported.

The vanity plates will bear a graphic showing "intertwined flags of Israel and South Carolina," according to the report.

Rep. Alan Clemmons introduced the legislation into the South Carolina House of Representatives in December last year, and it was approved by the House on April 3 this year by 57 to 1, the Jewish Press said. The bill got unanimous Senate approval on May 21.

Those who want the plate will have to pay $7. Rabbi Yossi Refson, head of Charleston Chabad, announced they will cover the cost, and is accepting donations from people outside the state who want to express their support for Israel through license plates in South Carolina.
