ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesotans can soon indulge their love affair with specialty license plates even more deeply.

State legislators this past week introduced four more to the 200-plus already available.

Many raise money for pet causes. That's the case for two of the new offerings. One will benefit the Minnesota parks and trails system, the other the Minnesota chapter of the Professional Golfers Association.

Other plates celebrate a driver's identity. The other two new plates are for female veterans and retired firefighters.
