PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Legislature sent a bill to Gov. Jan Brewer that would create a special "Don't Tread On Me" license plate commemorating tea party supporters.

It would require the plate to feature the rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden Flag that is a symbol of the tea party movement.

The measure creating the plate and two others won final approval Tuesday in a 22-8 vote by the Senate.

A Brewer spokesman says the governor hasn't yet taken a public position on the bill.

She faces a May 2 deadline for acting on the measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Don Shooter.

The Senate deleted a provision in the bill last month to have the state highway fund front $32,000 of startup costs after critics objected.
