The 2018 WNBA champion Seattle Storm are being honored in a unique way by some of its biggest fans in the Washington State Senate.

One of the items on the recent agenda in Olympia was the creation of a special commemorative license plate for the Storm.

The Seattle Storm license plate would be the first in our state for a women’s sports team.

–Sen. Emily Randall (D-Bremerton)

That passed – nearly unanimously – through the Washington State Senate by a vote of 47-1. The only nay vote came from the Senate Republican Leader – Mark Schoesler – from the Evergreen State’s ninth legislative district that includes Spokane.

Even though the bill sailed through the Washington State Senate with flying colors, Storm players voiced their displeasure through Twitter on the lone dissenter from Ritzville.

Loyd retweeted Bird’s tweet.

I’m excited about this bill because it’s a great win for gender parity and also because the funds raised by this plate will go toward investing in the promise of young women and girls.

–Sen. Emily Randall (D-Bremerton)
