— A bill that would allow college sports fans to buy special license tags featuring their favorite school's logo is expected to be voted on in the Kansas House next week.

Rep. David Adkins, a Leawood Republican who supports the bill, said he expected the measure to pass in the House and move on to the Senate. The House Transportation Committee approved it Thursday.

Adkins, a former Kansas University student body president, said the bill would allow an officially recognized foundation or alumni association of a public or private college in the state to sell certificates for $25 to $100 for the specialized plates.

After administrative costs are deducted, remaining funds would go for programs that recognize academic achievement or excellence, such as scholarships, Adkins said.

Buyers would show certificates when they go to purchase their license plate at the county treasurer's office, he said.
