New Hampshire drivers who want to show their financial support for various charities and organizations on their license plates now have more than a dozen options.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday signed a bill expanding the state's year-old decal plate program. The special plates have a 3-inch blank square on the left side where a decal issued by authorized organizations can be placed.

The program started last year with three eligible organizations, but now includes another 11. Among the new additions are The Boy Scouts of America, the New Hampshire Food Bank, the University System of New Hampshire and organizations that support families dealing with pediatric cancer, mental illness and substance use disorders.

The plates cost $8 initially, plus $15 per year in addition to the usual registration feeds.
