SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A smiling Snoopy is making his way onto California license plates to raise money for museums and related attractions.

The plates initially cost $50 or $98 for personalized versions, with a lower price for renewing annually.

Proceeds will fund grants for California's 1,400 museums, science centers, zoos, aquariums and children's museums, to be administered by the California Cultural and Historical Endowment.

The plate design was revealed Thursday during a news conference hosted by the author of the license plate bill, Democratic Assemblywoman Toni Atkins of San Diego.

Californians can apply for the plates at www.snoopyplate.com . The state will not begin making them until it has received 7,500 applications.

Jean Schulz, the widow of "Peanuts" comic strip creator Charles Schulz, is allowing the state to use Snoopy's image without paying royalties.
