Illinois debutes temporary Obama tags



    Celebrate This Holiday Season in Lively St. Charles

    Want to feel like you're part of a presidential motorcade?

    The state of Illinois is cashing in on its current favorite son with new President Barack Obama license plates, the latest in a long list of Obama-related memorabilia.

    The set of temporary license plates featuring Obama's picture and a waving American flag are legal starting Tuesday.

    They're good until April 17, cost $50 and sport the slogan, "Illinois Salutes President Barack Obama."

    The money collected from the plates will go to the Illinois Library Association and a children's summer reading program called iRead.

    Motorists can pick up the plates at this weekend's Chicago Auto Show or online at ila.org/obama.
