Wash D.C. Pushing President Limo Plates

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The District of Columbia is urging President-elect Barack Obama to use license plates on the presidential limousine that support the city's attempt to get a vote in Congress.

A letter sent from the city council this week asks Obama to use license tags that proclaim: "Taxation Without Representation."

Eight years ago, the city began printing license plates with the slogan. Shortly before leaving office, President Bill Clinton had the tags on his presidential limousine. President George W. Bush quickly had them removed.

Obama supported a bill last year that would have given D.C. a seat in the House. His transition team said in an e-mail that they would respond later to the council's letter.
