COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohioans will see a new, simpler red and white license plate next year.
The Columbus Dispatch reports ( http://bit.ly/vzTEnR ) that Gov. John Kasich will unveil the design at a Monday news conference at the Columbus College of Art & Design -- the school where the plate was created.
The new, simple design features a small red triangle at the top of the plate and a white background. Ohioans will choose state slogans over the coming months to adorn the background.
The plate will replace or supplement the "Beautiful Ohio" plate based on a design by former Ohio first lady Frances Strickland. The colorful, year-old plates feature a barn, a city skyline and a Wright brothers biplane.
A redesigned driver's license is also expected to be unveiled Monday.
