In Kansas the Vanity plates have been unique to each county so it was
possible to have 105 plates of the same letter number combination (up
to six, I believe) with the only difference being the two letter county
designation sticker.  No longer.  Legislation enacted last year now
limits a unique combination to the entire state.  A lot of people will
be losing their vanity plates.  I'm sure this was a move to simplify
things for the DMV and law enforcement. but it's going to cause the
state to lose a bunch of revenue at 50 bucks a pop when a number of
people opt to go back to a regular plate.

My amateur radio callsign is on my pickup which costs a whole $1 extra
per year.
