A bill to put "In God We Trust" on some Utah license plates moved closer to passage Wednesday in the Utah Senate.

Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, amended HB34 to remove a requirement for people interested in getting a plate to pay $25 annually to the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles, with the proceeds of that money going to faith-based groups.

Instead, obtaining the proposed plate would cost a one-time fee, as with any other specialty license plate and no cash funneled to private groups.

With the amendment, the bill won preliminary approval 23-0. But it will need a final Senate vote.
