MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Military-themed plates benefiting the state's Veterans Trust Fund are the most popular among the 13 types of state special plates.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, as of July, more than 20,000 plates benefiting veterans were registered in Wisconsin. That total covers 51 versions promoting various military service or medal designations.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the least popular were the "Lions Foundation" plates, which were purchased by 248 vehicle owners in the last fiscal year to benefit the Wisconsin Lions Foundation.

The issue of which groups get special license plates arose earlier this month during a legislative proposal to add an anti-abortion "Choose Life" plate to the lineup.
