Ahead of the 250th celebration of our country, the Pennsylvania license plate design is getting a new look.

An off-white color including the Liberty Bell and the words, "Let Freedom Ring."

Governor Josh Shapiro said the design highlights, "Pennsylvania's place as the birthplace of American democracy and freedom."

Tim Wachter is a Commissioner for The Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial (America250PA).

The group was established to coordinate the commemoration of the anniversary while also highlighting the role and the impact the state and its people have had on the nation's past, present, and future.

"Republicans, Democrats, Independents and non-affiliates, where we are coming together and celebrating what makes us unique, it is so refreshing, especially in this political climate to be involved in an effort like this," Wachter said.

Some Pennsylvanians have described the new design as being too centered around the city of Philadelphia with the inclusion of the Liberty Bell.

Wachter does not see it that way, he thinks seeing the historical landmark makes people think of the state as a whole.

"This is a Pennsylvanian item, when you talk about the Liberty Bell you know that we are talking about Pennsylvania, our freedoms, our history and our nation's founding, this is an American issue not a Philadelphia issue," he said.

Even though we are just less than two years away from that celebration, Wachter is already looking forward to seeing what more the country will accomplish in years to come.

"We are really fresh as a country and I look forward to seeing what we are going to celebrating when we are celebrating the 300th anniversary," Wachter said.
