Maine license plates will continue to say "Vacationland," not "Staycationland" as proposed

AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - It looks like your license plates will continue to say "Vacationland" on them.

A bill was introduced to change it from that to "Staycationland."

Maine citizens and several tourism groups balked at that.

It led to the bill's sponsor pulling the bill Thursday.

"It seems with this bill that we have put the cart before the horse," said Rep. Kent Ackley (I-Monmouth). "I'm sure that everyone has got a full inbox these days. And so i would ask the committee to make a motion to ought not to pass."

The Chair of the transportation committee confirmed that the bill is going to die.
