The image of former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino could be affixed to the back of cars in the latest proposed specialty license plate.

State Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, D-Boynton Beach, filed a measure (HB 839) on Wednesday intended to benefit the Dan Marino Foundation through proceeds from the sale of the plate.


The Marino tag joins other proposed specialty plates that will be considered during the 2017 legislative session, which starts March 7.

The program provides services for people with autism and other developmental disabilities.

The Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee unanimously backed two other proposals on Wednesday: a plate (HB 309) whose proceeds would benefit the American Eagle Foundation, and a proposal (HB 323) that would create a Ronald Reagan specialty license plate.

Other specialty tags proposed for the session include such things as Ducks Unlimited (SB 56) and Support Our Constitution (SB 356). The state already offers 125 specialty plates.
