BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's general license plate is getting the first makeover in more than 20 years.
The Legislature's Budget Section approved the new design unveiled by the state Transportation Department on Wednesday.
The new plate retains much of the same design components of the current plate released in 1993.
The new plate still has a blue sky, a butte and a bison. It also has two wheat sheaves instead of one and the state's tourism slogan, ''Discover the Spirit,'' has been replaced by ''Legendary.''
The new plate also is flat instead of embossed.
North Dakota lawmakers set aside almost $7 million last year to make and distribute the plates.
More than 1 million license plates must be replaced with the new plate by June 30, 2017.
