In Montana the ham plates are free plus a small administrative fee. In
1955, there was a ham in the state legislature that got the bill entered
and passed. He wrote the "free" clause into his bill, and except for an
administrative fee added later, it has stuck. Montana was one of the
first few states to get "ham plates." They're still manufactured at the
state prison in Dillon MT.
