(CNN) – In a sign of solidarity, President Barack Obama began using the standard license plate for the District of Columbia on Saturday on presidential vehicles. The plates famously state "Taxation Without Representation."
The head car in his motorcade on Monday bore plate number 800 002 as the president rolled across town to volunteer at an elementary school.
(CNN) - In a sign of solidarity, President Barack Obama will begin using the standard license plate for the District of Columbia, which famously states "Taxation Without Representation," on presidential vehicles, a White House official confirmed Tuesday.
The move comes after the city council for Washington, D.C. petitioned the president last week through a resolution, demanding that Obama use the license plates as millions watch his presidential motorcade drive down Pennsylvania Avenue for his inauguration on Monday.
