Gov. Mary Fallin and Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby have announced a compact between the state and the tribe for Chickasaw Nation license plates to members of the tribe. 

The compact says Chickasaw tags will be sold exclusively at state-licensed tag agencies in Oklahoma. Chickasaws who want to purchase the tags will present their Chickasaw Nation citizenship card and pay the same fees and taxes any other Oklahoman for a tag.

Anoatubby says many tribal citizens have requested the license plates. Fallin said the compact will benefit both the tribe and the state.

The Chickasaw Nation designed the tag and is working with the Oklahoma Tax Commission to finalize plans for its manufacture.
