Montgomery, Ala.
Alabama's standard license plate is switching from a coastal scene to the mountains of the northern part of the state. The state Revenue Department says the new tag will be available Jan. 1.

It will replace the "Sweet Home Alabama" tag that promotes Alabama's coast.

State Tourism Department spokesman Brian Jones says the new tag is designed with mountains and a lake reminiscent of north Alabama and is designed to show that Alabama has those attractions.

The new license plate doesn't include the "Sweet Home Alabama" slogan that was on the old tag.

The Revenue Department is also coming out with a new "God Bless America" tag Oct. 1. It has the American flag positioned differently, but it still says "God Bless America" across the bottom.
