I want to know if they will make new license plate with design like Arizona beautiful Desert/saguaro, New Mexico Hot baloone, Nevada golden mountain, I meant NOT included Yosemite or Ocean Scenic or others because of fund or booster.

Please let me know about it as I can find in internet about new design Calif license plates in the future. Thank you, Phillip
