The Georgia Department of Revenue released an updated proposal for rules on prestige license plates Monday.

The Department had looked at implementing a rule that would bar plates from containing any references to weapons, drugs or alcohol. The brand new rules, however, no longer contain that ban.

Any language or numbers used to disparage a religion, a race, a gender or a sexual orientation would not be allowed.

DOR officials will meet to consider adopting the rules on September 20, 2013.

The public can send comments to the Department of Revenue up until that meeting.
